Avast! There’s Mutiny at the Shreveport Aquarium

Kids can learn to be a pirate!

Arrrgh! Shiver me timbers, pirates are once again taking over the Shreveport Aquarium in October with Mutiny! Embark on an epic haunted pirate adventure during regular aquarium hours. This year explore Sea Monster Alley, ramble of a creaky bridge and even meet a mermaid. Hunt in the Treasure Mine for loot. Learn valuable pirating skills and see all sorts of cool and creepy sea creatures. You get to choose the next Captain: Fun-Loving Goldgill or Fearsome RedFin! Will you be fed to the fishies? (No, but you can feed the stingrays.)

There’s a camp for young pirates

From October 10-14, 2022, kids ages 6-11 can partake in the special STEAM-powered Camp Mutiny. Not only will kids learn about the creatures of the deep, they’ll learn how to read maps, sail ships, hunt for lost pirate’s treasure in the Treasure Mine and design their own treasure chest! For more info and to register your young pirate wannabe here.
