Don’t miss a single thing!
Set course for the brand-NEW Hatchling Harbor and be immersed in a bustling 25-foot-long habitat filled with hundreds of colorful and curious animals! Explore this busy corner of the Caribbean that lies between the shore and the reef where young fish find food, shelter and safety among the flowing seagrasses and waving sea fans.
Meet baby animals growing and changing every day! With the exhibit being home to so many young animals, you’ll find a new experience every time you visit as you watch them change their shape, color and markings as they grow into adulthood and ultimately head further out to sea. The longer you linger, the more this rich habitat will reveal. It all opens March 3 in the NEW Hatchling Harbor!Learn More
They may look like plants, but the new Weedy Sea Dragons are actually related to seahorses! Their beautiful leafy appendages provide camouflage by resembling the plant life found throughout their habitat. When finding a potential mate, Weedy Sea Dragons use elaborate movements, mirror each other’s body language and even spiral around each other as part of the courtship process! You can catch them gracefully swimming in Seahorses: Unbridled Fun.
