Tidepools on Tour
Tidepools on Tour is a NEW program offered by the Central Coast Aquarium. With our new mobile aquarium tanks, we can bring our live animals to you! We provide formal presentations and informal programs. The types of animals we typically bring are: hermit crabs, Spiny California King Crabs, graceful crabs, decorator crabs, kelp crabs, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, sea anemones, gumboot chitons, keyhole limpets, sea snails, flatfish, mussels, scallops, and a variety of algae. ALL of these animals can be touched.
We can also bring our microscopes to view a variety of plankton. Other lessons we can bring are: Marine mammals, Sharks and Rays, Hermit Crab Investigations, Water Chemistry, and others upon request.
