17 – Behind-the-Scenes Tour – 11:00  – Construction on the Sea Turtle Experience is underway, and the two sea turtles waiting to call the exhibit home are getting excited to meet everyone!  You can get an early introduction to these magnificent creatures by participating on a Behind-the-Scenes Tour.  You’ll not only walk through our holding facility and see the turtles, you’ll also get to journey above the Siegfried Families Shark Adventure to see the half-million gallon tank from a marine biologist’s perspective. 

  • Adults – $10, Youth – $8 plus general admission or membership. For safety reasons, tour not recommended for children under 5 years old.  
  • Behind-the-scenes tours will be sold at the main admission gate on a first come basis, and limited to 20 per tour. No advance reservations can be accepted.
  • The tour includes a fair amount of walking and climbing stairs, so we are unable to accommodate wheelchairs or strollers in the working areas.
  • Participants will be required to sign a liability waiver.
  • Sturdy, closed toe shoes are recommended for both your safety and comfort.
