The mermaids are finally here!
Now until November 11th, you can experience the magical world of mermaids at Adventure Aquarium! Watch real-life mermaids as they swim among the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast, as well as stingrays and hundreds of fish.
Until November 11, you’ll find mermaids Amira, Kai, Nixie, Lelu and more mermaid friends swimming in our 550,000 Shark Realm, which houses nearly 30 sharks (including blacktip sharks, sandbar sharks, sand tiger sharks and nurse sharks!) as well as 200 other animals.
When the mermaids aren’t busy swimming with their underwater friends, you can find them on dry land during daily meet and greets at the Blue Mile. Come say hi and take a picture with the mermaid of your choice! The mermaids will also share tips for how you can help protect their home – the ocean – and improve the lives of all the creatures that live there.
That’s not all – this year, we invite you to become a mermaid with our Mermaids VIP Encounter! Join us in the Skyline Room and enjoy a deluxe face painting, including one-of-a-kind gems and glitter with your choice of either an LED hair tinsel or crown! You can also try on a magical mermaid tail and complete your look with an enchanting mermaid wand, and show off your creativity by creating a special mermaid-themed craft during your visit. Not only that – we’ll have cake and mermaid punch or lemonade for all of our guests, which comes in a take-home souvenir cup.
