#AAQMermaids Checklist: Sea Everything During Your Visit!


Magic and Mermaids will return to Adventure Aquarium in just days! 

Back by popular demand, the mythical world of Mermaids returns for a limited time from Sunday, November 5 through Sunday, November 12.

Did we mention the Mermaid Experience is included with Aquarium admission or Membership?? We want to make sure you get to SEA everything during Mermaids so here’s a handy checklist to use during your visit!

#1. See a Mermaid Swim in Shark Realm

Currents Ballroom is the new home for Mermaids in 2017.  You don’t want to miss the mesmerizing Wands and Wishes Mermaids dive in our 550,000-gallon Shark Realm exhibit and appear in one of Currents Ballroom’s movie screen-sized windows.  The sharks, graceful stingrays and glittering schools of menhaden gliding past are just a bonus (Zone D)!

#3. Get a Mermaid’s Autograph

Have another dry-land opportunity to meet a Mermaid up close in Ocean Realm Panoramic Window (Zone A) and receive a free autograph! Available daily during Mermaids.

#6. Complete Your Treasure Map

Grab a map when you arrive and then collect colorful sticker coins at each Mermaid experience throughout the Aquarium to complete your commemorative Mermaid treasure map.

Be sure to channel your inner mermaid or pirate during your visit as Stacey’s Face Painting will offer themed designs daily during Mermaids.  Check out that Deluxe little mermaid below!
