Oregon Coast Aquarium - Passages of the Deep

Newport, OR

After Keiko was relocated Mountain States was called in to convert the tank into the Passages of the Deep Exhibit. The exhibit construction consisted of the placement of a 112-foot long acrylic tube through the exhibit, allowing viewers to see the exhibit above, below, and to either side. The exhibit consists of a near coastal environment with a wave-making machine, a mid coastal environment consisting of a shipwreck separated by the viewing tube, and an open-ocean exhibit consisting of deep-sea life.
