Experience warm weather at the New England Aquarium! See tropical fish, travel with iMax, and even pet a stingray or two!

If you are staying close to home this February school vacation, the Aquarium has the ticket to many tropical getaways including the opening of “Galapagos 3D: Nature’s Wonderland” in the Simons IMAX Theatre.

There you will experience sweeping views of the island paradise which 9,000 species call home from giant tortoises and penguins to marine iguanas and whale sharks.

Then, step inside the Aquarium, and you will see fish and other marine life native to the Caribbean, South Pacific and other warm, tropical waters from oceans all over the world.

If you haven’t seen it lately, the new, colorful, bustling tropical Caribbean reef inside our four-story Giant Ocean Tank is where our famous 560-pound green sea turtle, Myrtle, lives alongside new fish species such as midnight parrotfish, trumpet fish, guitarfish as well as hundreds of other colorful reef fish.

And, we always have our lively – and noisy - penguin feedings every day with penguin species from Africa, Australia and South America Penguins can live in warm places so long as they have access to cooler water.

Always a thrill at the Aquarium is the Trust Family Foundation Shark and Ray Touch Tank where visitors stroke the backs of small sharks and sting rays in a tropical mangrove pool.

Of course, the Aquarium has cold water species as well.

The New Balance Marine Mammal Center hosts daily feedings of the fur seals and sea lions, and our new Turtle Rescue Team interactive exhibit features the efforts of the Aquarium’s dedicated marine animal rescue staff, caring for record numbers of cold-stunned and endangered sea turtles that wash ashore and need life-saving, long term care every winter.

Over the February School Vacation Weeks, the Aquarium will be open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Sunday.
