A new virtual reality experience at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas.

Have you ever dreamed of swimming with a humpback whale in Tonga or diving next to a 15-foot tiger shark in the Bahamas? Now’s the time to make that dream a reality...virtually.

Put on your headset, sit back in the motion seats, and be immersed in a world of undersea adventure. 360 degree 3-D virtual reality technology transports you to the South Pacific where a marine biologist takes you on a live-action journey to the nurturing grounds of the humpback whales, where you swim side-by-side with mother humpbacks and their new-born calves. If excitement is on your agenda, dive with tiger sharks and great hammerheads in the turquoise waters of Tiger Beach in the Bahamas.

The Undersea Explorer VR experience is educational fun for ocean explorers of all ages.
