The aquarium will be open normal hours from 9am-5pm. They will be featuring a program with river otters at 11:30am. Throughout the day they will be offering dive programs, feed presentations, live animal encounters, and quiz games. All of these programs are free with admission.

The aquarium is also going to be offering several special programs throughout the day. Here are the aquariums special listings:

  • Choose from two behind-the-scenes adventures. Aquarium at a Glance at 12 p.m. takes you to food preparation areas, animal holding areas and labs and includes an overhead look into the Living Shipwreck. ($8, ages 5 and up). The Feeding Frenzy behind-the-scenes tour at 2:30 p.m. covers similar territory but adds the excitement of feeding the fish in the Living Shipwreck. ($12, ages 5 and up).
