The Swimming with Sharks Scavenger Hunt

Will your team get in the swim—or get schooled?

Discovering exotic and bizarre fish is just part of the fun when you embark on this adventure at Southern California’s premier aquarium. On teams, you’ll follow a trail of tricky clues, uncover amusing trivia about some of the ocean’s most unusual creatures, and learn a few crazy things about your teammates in the process. Highlights include a creature that could hang with Batman, a fish that might wield a scalpel, a sea jelly that sounds like breakfast, a pet fit for Scrooge, a swimmer you’ll want to salute, and birds that get turned on by citrus.

You’ll search for answers to such questions as…

  • Visit a tank where you might expect to find enormous grouches. Some older residents here might say to the kids, “You look so cute, I could eat you up!” What word might lead you to believe these creatures got more sun than the others here? Answer: Tanner crabs often eat juveniles, as noted at the Giant Crab tank.
  • Who needs to disappear from a “circus act” for Nemo to turn into a Nina? Answer: Clownfish can change from male to female if the breeding female disappears. (The fish in the movie ‘Finding Nemo’ was a clownfish.)

No knowledge of the ocean or the aquarium is necessary to play—or to win.

For corporate groups, this Long Beach aquarium makes a great off-site destination for team-building fun. We’ve also staged a hunt here for a company that rented out part of the facility for a party and dinner to follow a hunt.

Kids Edition available: School groups looking for an activity where kids and adults can collaborate and have fun together will love our “Go Fish” edition.
