Virtual Encounter Programs

Your Animal Adventure Is Just A Click Away!

Maybe it’s the bright white melon of a beluga. Perhaps it’s the bark of a sea lion or bray of a penguin, the shimmy of a seal or the swagger of a reptile that sparks your interest in animal care and conservation. No matter the inspiration, you’ll truly enjoy Mystic Aquarium’s virtual encounter programs. From the comfort of your home or confines of a classroom and from anywhere around the world, this unique and engaging experience is at your fingertips.

  • Each virtual program is available for one group per day.
  • Virtual programs do not include the cost of Aquarium admission.
  • Program availability is subject to change; blackout dates may apply.
Virtual beluga

All Whale, No Splash

The beluga whales in our care are just as engaging virtually as they are in person – see for yourself during one of our virtual beluga encounters!

Virtual penguin

Pitter, Patter, Paint, Splatter

It’s as enriching as it is entertaining! Watch as one of the African penguins in our care creates a one-of-a-kind masterpiece just for you.

Virtual seal

Artistic Seal Of Approval

While the seals in our care have flippers, not fingers, our animal care specialists have crafted a fun enrichment tool to harness creativity.

Something Not So Fishy

The California sea lions have many trained behaviors around their oral care, one of which has been adapted for this special enrichment activity.
