Interactive Aquarium Tours - Where Marine Adventures Begin!
Take an interactive tour of our aquarium and observe some of the marine plants and animals living in Bonne Bay. We will introduce you to fragile marine plankton, the "saltwater soup" of our oceans. Get your hands wet among the sea stars, coralline algae, hermit crabs, and other curious creatures living in our ever-popular touch tank. Storyboards, underwater footage, and interactive displays inform visitors about our latest research endeavours. Tours are provided by knowledgeable, friendly, student interpreters, and are approximately 45 minutes in duration.
