Description

Hands on underwater exploration is a key feature of the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, Connecticut! Come see beluga whales in a lovely one-acre outdoor area, African Penguins, sea lions and much more. There are also the special Animal Encounter Programs where you get an hour to interact with either the beluga whales, penguins or sting rays. In a 1999 expansion on the Aquarium is The Institute for Exploration, housing artifacts and exhibits based on Dr. Robert Ballad's underwater explorations for famous sunken ships, such as PT 109, the Bismarck and the RMS Titanic.
