Immerse Yourself in an Up-close Look at the World's Oceans

National Aquarium

  

Insider's Tour

On this guided tour, you’ll get an insider’s look at the National Aquarium. Get a head start and see some of its most popular exhibits, including the newest exhibit, Blacktip Reef, before doors open to the public. Journey to wild and wonderful Australia, where you’ll see an archerfish spit to catch his morning meal. You’ll get up close with one of the aquarium's rain forest residents, and—if you’re feeling daring—you can even snack on a bug or two! Stop by the kitchen to grab a few krill pops (special frozen treats for the fish) before heading to Atlantic Coral Reef where you’ll help feed some of the exotic animals that call this exhibit home.

Dolphins Explorer

Join the aquarium for an exclusive teaching and play session with its dolphins! Participate in a special session with the dolphins and marine mammal team before the aquarium opens to the public! See how trainers teach the dolphins and discover the distinctive features that help them tell the animals apart. Just like a person’s fingerprint, each dolphin has a unique fluke, or tail. It’s art class for the dolphins, so grab a front-row seat as the trainers show you—start to finish—how the dolphins create a fluke print. You’ll even take home a special copy of a fluke print made by one of the eight Atlantic bottlenose dolphins—a work of art you won’t find anywhere else!
