Mermaids are returning to Newport Aquarium for a limited time only event, September 29th through October 15th. And, brand new for 2017, they’re joined by swashbuckling pirates!
Prepare to be mesmerized as you witness a real-life Mermaid swimming among the sea life in our Amazon Tunnel, including one of the world’s largest freshwater fish- the arapaima! Plus, enjoy a one-on-one visit with a Mermaid on dry land during our daily meet and greets in Shark Ray Bay Theater. Don’t forget your camera- you can get your photo taken with them! These special mermaids are visiting Newport Aquarium from different parts of the world, and along the way you’ll hear about how important ocean conservation is for them and all sea life.
Why does it take pirates so long to learn the alphabet? Because they spend years at C! Arrrrrrrr you ready for a brand new pirate experience in 2017? Stingray Hideaway is where X marks the spot, and you’ll encounter infamous pirates greeting guests throughout the day!
The Mermaid and Pirate Experience is included with Newport Aquarium admission.
