Get More Out of Your Visit with a Virtual Presentation

Two weeks before your field trip, one of our Aquarium educators can join your class via web conferencing to deliver a 30-minute primer on the amazing ocean animals and ecosystems you'll see when you arrive. Once you've booked your Self-Guided Field Trip, look for the Virtual Ocean Explorers sign-up link on your confirmation screen or in your confirmation e-mail.
