Take a Backstage Animal Experience
$12.99 per person (Must pre-purchased by Wednesday, April 26 by calling 859-815-1471).
Just one more new thing to see and do at Newport Aquarium! Step behind the scenes to see how our professionals and volunteers care for thousands of marine animals in a million gallons of salt and fresh water. Led by a seasoned Animal Experience Specialist, your 45-minute Backstage Animal Experience will allow you to see our giant Shark Tank, Coral Reef Tank and Amazon River Tank from the top down. You will learn all about how our divers, veterinary lab and water quality lab help keep our animals healthy. You will learn how we feed animals and what we do to prepare them to travel or move from tank to tank. Your tour will include a hands-on meeting with one of the animals from our public-education collection.
Backstage is a dynamic, working environment, so you never know what you will see. Each tour is unique and filled with new discoveries, from divers in fins to animals in transport.
Offered both days at 1:15pm, or 3:15pm
Get Up-Close and Personal with a Penguin Encounter
