The Swimming with Sharks Scavenger Hunt

Embark on a deep-sea adventure

Boasting sharks, seals, penguins, electric eels, and all sorts of exotic underwater sea life, the New England Aquarium is a great place for a scavenger hunt. You and your team will spiral around the 200,000-gallon, multistory Giant Ocean Tank in the center of the aquarium, then fan out to the various bays on each level.

Highlights include…

  • Hopping fish
  • Bifocaled and bisexual fish
  • Punk penguins
  • Superhero lobsters
  • And a tomato clownfish (no doubt laughed at by the other fish in his school)

No knowledge of aquatic life or the aquarium itself is necessary for you to dominate this deep dive into the New England Aquarium’s secrets, but teamwork and collaboration could make all the difference between winning and losing.
