See the Aquarium's resident belugas at the Arctic Coast. Studded with jagged rocks, glacial streams and northern evergreens, this one-acre outdoor habitat features three interconnected pools holding more than 750,000 gallons of water, making it one of the largest outdoor beluga whale exhibits in the United States.
Get an up-close, eye-to-eye encounter with the belugas through a series of three 20-foot-long underwater windows. Caves featuring bubble-shaped windows are built into the rockwork and offer children a different perspective on the belugas’ underwater world. Above-water viewing is possible from rocky overlooks at various levels. Throughout the day, visitors can also see aquarium staff working with the animals during informal marine mammal presentations. These educational demonstrations may feature the training of new behaviors for better veterinary care or simply provide enrichment and play time.
We offer encounter programs with our beluga whales, allowing guests a unique experience that fosters a deeper appreciation for animals here at the aquarium and in the wild. Your participation helps care for our animals and preserve wild beluga whales for all to cherish. Learn more.
