Discover what is beneath the surface of the water in an engaging 75-minute exploration where Aquarium staff trawls the ocean floor for a sample of sea life to bring on board. This is our most interactive trip, as it offers participants the opportunity assist with the collection and identification of fish, invertebrates, and plankton.


Guests should check-in 30 minutes prior to the boat departure time at the dock adjacent to the Bay & Ocean Pavilion parking lot at 717 General Booth Blvd. Day-of tickets are available onsite if space allows.Trips are subject to boating conditions, but will not be canceled due to precipitation.
