Experts estimate that as much as 95 percent of the volume of the World Ocean and 99 percent of its seafloor remain unexplored.
Humans have only just begun to scratch the surface of our planet’s vast ocean. Be an explorer at the Aquarium, and learn about the history of ocean exploration, current missions, new discoveries, and challenges and opportunities for the future. Animals, exhibits, educational displays, films, an art exhibit, a festival, and an ocean explorer guest speaker series are all part of our year-long program on Ocean Exploration. The highlight is the Wonders of the Deep exhibit that features the unusual and unique animals that live in the deep sea beyond the reach of light.
