Learn about orcas with hands-on activities all weekend. Check out our 20-foot-long, inflatable orca, modeled after Granny—matriarch of the endangered southern resident population, and believed to have been the oldest known orca. Plus, find out how ocean debris impacts these whales, and why healthy salmon populations are so important to their survival.
Divers take to the water three times a day in this exhibit. Wearing specialized masks, they are able to talk back and forth with Aquarium interpreters on the outside of the exhibit, and answer questions from the audience.
