Accompany Aquarium staff on a guided tour of animal quarantine, life support, food preparation and access areas. Participants should wear closed-toe shoes. For ages 8 and older. Ages 14 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. Fee: $20 for ages 13 and older, $18 for ages 8-12. PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED.
