Alan McKenna will use a 60-foot hydrophone during your experience to unlock its secrets. This device offers a window into the otherwise silent world beneath the waves. With the hydrophone’s sensitive sensors, McKenna will let you listen to the subtle echoes and vibrations that permeate the aquatic environment.
