Description

Meet oceanic and atmospheric scientists from NOAA who helped develop the latest Exploratorium exhibits, get a sneak peek at their research vessel the Bell M. Shimada, and explore marine biology with a fish head dissection.

Limited public tours of the 209-foot Bell M. Shimada will be available on a first-come first-served basis from 1-4pm only on June 30. Only about 250 people total will be given entry. All visitors will undergo ID checks. The 30-min. tour will include a visit to the ship bridge, laboratory, and the back fishing deck. Visitor requirements: flat, closed-toed shoes only. While there is no age limit, visitors must be mobile (able to climb ladders and gangways without assistance) and children must be accompanied by adults. No strollers or wheelchairs allowed. Bags are not allowed on board or will be searched.

The ship monitors protected species, observes weather, conducts oceanographic research, and surveys marine animal populations.
