Mystic Aquarium Review
The famous Arctic Coast exhibit—which holds 800,000 gallons of water, measures 165 feet at its longest point by 85 feet at its widest point, and ranges from just inches to 16½ feet deep—is just a small part of this revered establishment. You can also check out world-renowned ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard's Institute for Exploration and its Nautilus Live Theater which features live video from the E/V Nautilus ship as it explores wrecks. You can also see African penguins, harbor seals, graceful sea horses, Pacific octopuses, and sand tiger sharks. Don't miss feeding time at the Ray Touch Pool, where rays suction sand eels right out of your hand. The animals here go through 1,000 pounds of herring, capelin, and squid each day. Juno, a male beluga whale, is responsible for consuming 85 pounds of that himself. For an up-close-and-personal experience with a beluga whale, take part in the Trainer for Day ($375) or Beluga Encounter ($145) programs. Both allow you to touch and interact with these magnificent animals.
