We've taken a few educational boat trips over the years but yours was by far the best all-around experience. The highlight had to be the breadth of sea life we pulled up and got a chance to investigate, interact with and, of course, learn about."

Kids can spend their spring school vacation exploring our watery world in this special series of fun activities at The Maritime Aquarium.
The programs are filled with age-appropriate activities, experiments and animal encounters. There’s a different theme each day for younger kids (ages 6 to 9), who can attend one, some or all five days ... you decide! Older kids (ages 9-12) take part in our popular week-long “Junior Marine Biologist” program.
Programs meet from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. each day. Bring a bag lunch, a snack (packed separately) and an appetite for adventure. Spring Vacation Adventures are $100 per day or $435 for the full week. Pre-Care from 8:30-9:30 a.m. is $20 a day or $75 a week. Extended Care from 3:30-5:30 p.m. is $35 a day or $145 a week.
There are no refunds, except when the Aquarium has to cancel due to facility closing or under-enrollment. Once your child has enrolled, there will be a $25 fee to switch days. Space is limited and programs fill quickly! Advance reservations required. Call (203) 852-0700, x 2206.
Bring a lunch and a snack (packed separately). Make sure you pick up your child on time. (A late fee of $15 for every 15 minutes after pick-up time will apply.)
