On occasion, we offer workshops that allow Scouts the opportunities to earn various environmental and marine science badges. While we do not currently have any workshops scheduled, please check back for future workshop opportunities.
Scout groups are invited to spend the night with our animals in the Under the Sea event or venture out on a boat trip in our Snooze and Cruise event.
Under the Sea

Under the Sea Overnight Guide
Snooze and Cruise
Scouts, are you ready to explore our coastal ocean waters? Join us for an evening of science experiments, ocean-themed games, and meet an animal ambassador before sleeping in our Main Building. Rise and shine bright and early to join Aquarium educators aboard our Ocean Collections vessel to collect a variety of local fish and marine invertebrates and observe them up close aboard the boat. Watch as they work the trawl net and pull up discoveries that may include seahorses, stingrays, blue crabs, keyhole urchins, and jellies, and then release the animals back into the ocean. Our boat trips run rain or shine, so don't forget a jacket! Advanced registration and a 25% deposit at the time of booking are required.
