NOTICE: Wild Dolphin Cruises are unavailable Sept. 6-Oct. 3 while our Bay Spirit II catamaran undergoes annual maintenance. Cruises are expected to resume Oct. 4, 2016. We apologize for any inconvenience.

 


The Making Waves Society is a group of Tampa Bay’s future leaders—those that prefer to make waves instead of riding them!
 

Our mission is to provide leadership development, community involvement, and networking opportunities for young professionals in the Tampa Bay area while providing philanthropic support to advance The Florida Aquarium’s mission, vision, and values. 

We aim to be a resource for you as you navigate the waters of civic engagement and leadership—whether your goal is to join a board, volunteer, or just meet new people, you will find value in this group!

Together, we will raise money for the Aquarium’s education and conservation programs, develop professional skills working alongside the Aquarium’s Board of Directors and Leadership Team and attend exciting networking events and social outings.
