Make your World Oceans Day just DUCKy!

Thanks to everyone who participated! The contest is now over and the tickets have all been snapped up. We hope you'll join us on Sunday to celebrate World Oceans Day with a day full of free family-friendly activities, games, demonstrations, learning and fun!

Boston DUCK Tours are once again helping us celebrate World Oceans Day with a fantastic splash! We're giving away tickets for three tours, each of which will roll out on Sunday, June 8. How do you win? We want to see how you live blue™!

Of course, Annie Aquarium is our favorite vehicle in the DUCK boat fleet!

We're running a contest this week—from Monday, 6/2, through Thursday, 6/5—through the mobile photo sharing app Instagram. So first off, make sure to follow @newenglandaquarium on Instagram. Then share a picture that shows how you live blue™, including #liveblue and @newenglandaquarium in your caption. We'll chose our favorite inspirational ocean photos to win seats on these one-of-a-kind tours on Boston! (NOTE: Your profile will have to public in order for us to see your posts.)

What does living blue look like? It could be a fun beach trip or a bike ride. It could be a memorable interaction with a favorite Aquarium animal. It could be your spiffy garden or compost pile. What do you do to help the blue planet? We can't wait to see! We'll chose our favorites and contact the winners via Instagram by Thursday afternoon. Be sure to check back to see if you're a winner!
