About this Boston tour
Hold your breath, we're going under! Come take a journey to the ocean depths to meet its amazing, mysterious, and sometimes downright scary citizens. As you immerse yourself into this watery world, you'll have the sensation of swimming with the sharks. Uh oh, is that a Great White lurking in the shadows? You're sure to get some goose bumps as you encounter this predator's toothy grimace face-to-face.
Join a pod of humpback whales instead and tune in to their songs of the sea and witness gravity-defying breaches. Crystal-clear images and a sound system that can be as quiet as a gentle wave or thunderous as a storm at sea join forces for a full-on sensory experience all without getting the least bit wet.
So mentally put on your wet suit, sit back, and get ready for deep-sea adventures. See science and conservation come alive dramatically in the life aquatic. Forget Finding Nemo and Free Willy, this is real discovery!
MAXimum movie viewing
IMAX (an acronym for Image MAXimum) takes the "big screen" experience to epic proportions and it's not just the screen that's super-sized. You'll see up to 21 percent more of the image than you would at a typical movie theater. (The film frame is also 10 times larger.) Even the equipment is gargantuan. The IMAX projector weighs in at a hefty 2,000 lbs that's a thousand pounds more than a Prius. And consider this: a 40-minute IMAX film is about three miles long!
