|Nautilus Live Theater|
Dr. Robert Ballard’s deep-sea explorations come alive at Mystic Aquarium's Nautilus Live Theater. This 50-seat, state-of-the-art theater space transports visitors to the unknown depths of the world’s oceans. Join Dr. Ballard and the Corps of Exploration aboard the Exploration Vessel (E/V) Nautilus as they explore Earth’s last great uncharted territory.
When the E/V Nautilus is at sea, telepresence technology brings live video and two-way ship-to-shore communications to the Nautilus Live Theater. You’ll have a front-row seat as the Corps of Exploration searches for undiscovered natural wonders and lost chapters of human history in the deep-water regions of the Black, Aegean and Mediterranean Seas off the coast of Turkey and Cyprus.
Now that the E/V Nautilus is in port, guests can enjoy high-definition 2012 post-expedition highlights of the amazing discoveries that took place just months before. A Nautilus team member who has been working with Dr. Ballard's team throughout the summer guides audiences through the expedition findings and their own special telepresence experiences.
