Don't miss the exciting whale watch adventure. The boat's captain takes passengers to the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary for an unforgettable journey. Just a short ride away, Stellwagen is one of the world's most active marine sanctuaries. Here, you can see whales, dolphins, and seabirds in their natural environments. Plus, if you don't spot any whales during your trip, you'll receive a free ticket for a future whale watch.
Standing four stories tall, the Giant Ocean Tank is home to hundreds of Caribbean reef animals. It's so large that it was actually constructed first, and then the rest of the aquarium was built around it. The star of the exhibit is a green sea turtle named Myrtle. Believe it or not, Myrtle has lived at the aquarium since 1970, which means she’s over 90 years old! She weighs more than 500 pounds, and feasts on cabbage, lettuce, squid, and Brussels sprouts. This specialized diet helps her live a long and happy life.
At the New England Aquarium, you can explore the Amazon Rainforest without leaving Massachusetts. It features one of the world's most diverse habitats and is home to hundreds of plants and animals, some of which have yet to be discovered. At the aquarium, you'll see creatures like electric eels, anacondas, and piranhas.
