Seals and Sea Lions
Stroll through the winding paths from the Arctic Coast to the rocky shores of the Pribilof Islands at the Pacific Northwest exhibit. Watch as harbor seals, Northern fur seals and Steller sea lions glide through the water and bask in the sun on the beach.
Be sure to catch one of the feeding and training sessions and hear the amazing stories of some of the rescued residents in this exhibit.
Our Blue Park
“Our Blue Park” takes guests on a photographic journey of the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument. Designated in September of 2016, the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts off the coast of New England was the first marine national monument in the U.S. Atlantic Ocean. Dr. Peter Auster was instrumental in providing the scientific rationale for conservation of the area.
Generously supported by the Naktenis Family Foundation
Mystic Aquarium seeks to connect with adults and children alike to raise awareness about conservation -locally and globally – through meaningful engagements like “Our Blue Park” to ultimately spark action. The vibrant imagery of the exhibit will engage visitors in learning the importance of this region-one of the best remaining undisturbed ecosystems in the north Atlantic. Its ongoing protection is vital to current and future scientific research.
Hear the click-clack of our boardwalk as you walk through the Marsh Trek. See if you can spot native animals like Eastern painted turtles, American bullfrogs and Mallard ducks. You may even luck out and enjoy a rare visit from a great blue heron!
How many can you find?
On any sunny day, dozens of frogs and turtles of all sizes take advantage of the warmth.
