Avast! There’s a Mutiny at the Shreveport A-sacre-ium

A great adventures awaits me mateys.

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 you will be recruited to join the pirate crew before exploring Sea Monster Alley and learn about the Legends of the Deep and important pirate skills. Hunt in the Treasure Mine for loot. Listen to mermaids tell tall tales and what pirate wouldn’t be complete without a pirate sing-a-long. Will you be fed to the fishies? (No, but you can feed the stingrays.) See all of the cool wildlife.

There’s a camp for young pirates

New from October 11-13, 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.
