Get a Backstage Pass
Monday, September 20, 2010
Get a rare chance to feed the sharks and rays while you enjoy a "backstage" visit to The Maritime Aquarium Behind-the-Scenes Tour on Saturday, September 25th. (additional tours will also take place on October 16th, November 27th, December 27th & 30th)
Operating the aquarium is an complicated production that must satisfy 1,000 animals with varying requirements for food, water temperatures and salinities, and more. See how it's all done when you visit their jellyfish "nursery" and the "fish kitchen," where meals for their residents are prepared.
You'll go above the Open Ocean exhibit, where you can look down on the sharks in their 110,000-gallon tank ... and even toss in some fish for them to eat! And feel the tickle as you hand-feed the cow-nosed rays!
Participants must be 10 years and older. Anyone under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult. These special Behind The Scenes Tours cost $32.50 for non-members ($22.50 for Aquarium members) and include Aquarium admission. There is a maximum of 25 people per tour. Walk-up sales are accepted.
Tours begin at 8:15AM
For reservations, call The Maritime Aquarium at 203-852-0700, ext. 2206. Space is limited.
