Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Clearwater Beach, Florida
This weekend jump aboard the Explore-a-Tour excursion vessel for the marine event of your lifetime. Bring the entire family to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and ready yourselves to become marine biologists for the morning. The 2 hour experience is extremely hands-on, as you become active participants in studying, identifying, and locating marine life.
The Explore-a-Tour event invites your family to participate in the Marine Aquarium’s mission of examining dolphins, seabirds, and the environment in which they live. Using binoculars, you will watch for bottlenose dolphins, pinpoint bird nesting sites, and partake in scientific testing of the estuary water quality. Instead of being lectured to, your family will join the professionals, playing a working role in the experience.
During your outing you will learn about the ecosystem from a scientist’s perspective, as you gather marine data and evidence. You will observe birds from afar, learning their identity, and analyzing their behaviors. You will also have the unique opportunity to participate in dolphin fin photo identification, and then apply it to your spotting of these magnificent creatures. The estuary waters will be tested, as you learn the qualities necessary to keep our bay clean. From the research gathered, your family will harvest a full understanding of how we can better protect our waters, marine life, and environment.
Ticket prices to board the boat are $26.95 for adults ages 13-59, $23.95 for adults ages 60+, and $17.95 for children ages 5-12. It is strongly recommended that we do not bring children under the age of 5. To purchase your tickets online, please click here.
If you and your family are prepared to embark on a marine expedition of a lifetime, you will absolutely not want to miss the Explore-a-Tour event. You will be actively contributing to the marine studies, research, and findings that will be conducted throughout the morning. Put on your scientist cap and head to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium this Saturday to experience the extraordinary life of a marine biologist!!
