THE TRIP

ornament

Two-hour adventures daily at 9:30am • 1pm • 4:30pm Sundays one show at 9:30am (subject to change)

Your adventure begins after a short cruise to a dive location in Frenchman Bay.

On the way out Diver Ed and Nori, the Newfoundland, will welcome you aboard. After setting anchor, Diver Ed and Mini-Ed don their dive gear. Diver Ed heads to the back of the boat where the kids get to push him overboard.


Now get ready to roll up your sleeves.

Diver Ed and Mini-Ed return to the boat – and so do the creatures! Touch tanks allow you to observe, handle, and sometimes even kiss, these strange and mysterious beings before they are returned safely to the sea. You will be amazed at the colors, the textures and the variety of animal life beneath the waves.


Then we send them all safely home.

All of the creatures are returned safely to sea, and we head back to the dock.
