Be prepared to ooh and aah at this aquarium’s varied, and interactive, habitats

Get inspired by the natural world at the Mystic Aquarium, where hands-on experiences and animal encounters let visitors get up close and personal to sea creatures of all sorts and sizes. Observe beautiful Beluga whales in the Arctic Coast, the country’s largest outdoor Beluga habitat, then head over to the SHARKS habitat to feel how smooth stingrays and Epaulette sharks are. The fun doesn’t stop there. Learn how seals and sea lions are trained and fed. Marvel at a Giant Pacific Octopus, a variety of tropical and freshwater fish, and take a closer look at snakes and lizards. Hungry? Grab a pizza, salad, or snack at Saltwater Cafe in the outdoor plaza.
