Home-Scroll CateringImagine you and your guests sipping cocktails and sampling delicacies from a raw bar in front of our dramatic 110,000-gallon "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit, all the while keeping one eye out for prowling sharks, enjoying scrumptious hors d'oeuvres in front of the river otter exhibit, dancing to live music in front of an audience of fun-loving seals, and enjoying a relaxing glass of wine on the River Plaza as the sun sets before heading inside for a traditional New England clambake. It’s all possible at The Maritime Aquarium!
