The adventure begins before you step foot through the door. Watch the Harbor Seals swirl around in the outdoor tank while you wait for your tickets, or linger when you finish and recount your time inside. A four-story tank spans the center of this aquatic marvel; filled with marine life this is a sight to be seen. Catch a show in the glass enclosed classroom overlooking Boston Harbor, plunge your hands into the touch tank where rays and sharks are circling and awaiting your touch. Whale Watch cruises are available seasonally and are a special way to enhance your day.
