Mystic Aquarium is home to thousands of species of marine mammals, fish, invertebrates and reptiles. Regardless of whether they have scales, fins or flippers, our animal ambassadors provide the essential connection to our ocean planet and its conservation. And we provide them with the best possible care!


World-class animal care is our highest priority here at Mystic Aquarium. Due to the current uncertainty regarding transmission of COVID-19 and concern for the marine animals in our care, we have reimagined animal encounter programs. Because each unique experience fosters a deeper appreciation for the animals, our animal care professionals worked hard to develop new, unique and engaging programs that can be provided during these unprecedented times.
