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."

On selected days during the school year, The Maritime Aquarium focuses its educational attention to specific areas of interest, such as "Whales and Other Endangered Species," or also to specific grade levels, such as "Small Fry" (preschool-Grade 2). These "Spotlight Days" include special activities, demonstrations and learning stations set up throughout the Aquarium galleries, plus special screenings of a related IMAX movie.
In our Field Programs, we'll meet you at a local beach for exciting explorations of the intertidal habitat. Crabs will be found!
Can't swing a field trip? We also can bring many of our Aquarium classroom programs to your classroom, through our Traveling Teacher & After-School offerings.
