The Ocean Adventure


Get your students excited about science! Our nationally-acclaimed school assembly programs are designed to complement school curricula.

Offers a Virtual Performance Option?


Virtual Performance Description

Our Virtual Performances are similar to our in-person performances with half the show being a “show-and-tell” using our props, models and specimens and the second half of the show being the exciting narration of the action-packed images and videos of us working with various marine animals in the wild. The Virtual Performances offer us the chance to add extra graphics and images that we can’t use in our in-person performances. (Please note that In our Virtual Performances we cannot use our life-sized inflatable animals due to our limited studio space.)

Viewing Limits/Parameters

We can work with any streaming service. Most schools and libraries use Zoom.
