October 25, 1999
Join the 3D Expedition
to the Exotic World of "Galapagos"

Uncover Unique Marine Life
at the California Science Center IMAX Theater
   
What: Explore Galapagos with Dr. Carole Baldwin, a marine biologist from the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Dive into the surrounding waters of the islands as schools of hammerhead sharks swim above, or play with sea lion pups in the tidal pools. Dr. Baldwin invites audiences to witness the discovery of new species of marine life while also coming face-to-face with the unique marine animals of Galapagos. Using advanced technology in the Johnson-SeaLink, Dr. Baldwin goes 3,000 feet deep into the islands' waters, where fish, eels and other marine creatures come close enough to touch. With the use of IMAX 3D immersion technology, audiences will come just as close.
