On your radar: Three Japanese defense ships visit, deals at the Florida Aquarium and 'Deadliest Catch' wraps its season

Tour Japanese ships: Tour three Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force ships today and Wednesday that are making a stop in Tampa. The Kashima, Asagiri and Mineyuki are part of a training cruise to expand goodwill with host communities. Tours start at 1:30 p.m. at Port of Tampa, 1101 Channelside Drive, Tampa. Free. Toll-free 1-800-741-2297.

Casablanca: The Capital Classics Film Series continues with this 1942 classic starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in a love triangle torn between romance and virtue. It starts at 7:30 p.m. at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater. $6. (727) 791-7400.

Tekken Blood Vengeance in 3-D: The world of the video game Tekken comes to life in a 90-minute feature. A question-and-answer session with the director and screenwriter follows the viewing.

Kids and family

Florida Aquarium: Today and next Tuesday, you can get into the aquarium for only $10 from 5 to 8 p.m. — tickets are normally $21.95, $16.95 for children — and members can bring a guest for only $5. It's at 701 Channelside Drive in Tampa. (813) 273-4015.

To watch

Season finale, Deadliest Catch, 9 p.m., Discovery. Will the Northwestern get revenge on the Time Bandit? Is this the last run of the Cornelia Marie? How many crew members will get arrested in the offseason? And will the behind-the-scenes special after this episode answer any of those questions?

Memphis Beat, 9 p.m., TNT. A dead guy's body disappears at his funeral. You know what that means — zombies.

Season finale, Gene Simmons Family Jewels, 10 p.m., A&E. Gene and Shannon may or may not make it through the end of this season. You can ask Hulk Hogan how this is probably going to turn out.

Covert Affairs, 10 p.m., USA. Annie and Joan pretend to be a news team to find out more info in a hostage crisis in Mexico. Because south of the border is the safest place to be a journalist, obviously.
