During the annual Party for the Ocean, visitors can experience how whales stay warm, how they see, hear, and stay afloat, including a opportunity to explore inside a 43-foot inflatable humpback whale.

About the Film
Ocean Frontiers III: Leaders in Ocean Stewardship & the New Blue Economy explores the intersection of national security, marine commerce, and conservation. The film tells the story of how ocean planning helps us manage and balance all the uses of our ocean to keep it thriving for generations to come. Ocean Frontiers III features rare underwater footage of stunning marine life along the coast from Virginia to Maine, and interviews with a range of people who are leading the way to a sustainable and thriving ocean.
