Take a walk into the sea - while staying dry - as you experience sea life like never before at Boston's New England Aquarium. Enjoy discounted admission to the New England Aquarium and spend a day watching and learning about some of nature's most majestic creatures.
Boston's New England Aquarium features over 70 different exhibits to educate and engage you. You'll learn about the tropical ocean and coral reefs at the Giant Ocean Tank. Enjoy 360 degree views of a spectacular, four-story Caribbean coral reef teeming with more animals than ever before. In 2013, the iconic Giant Ocean Tank underwent a top-to-bottom, 21s century transformation, including windows that provide crystal-clear viewing opportunities, a vibrant revitalized coral reef with more than 1,000 fishes, and the Yawkey Coral Reef Center at the top of the exhibit. The colorful Caribbean coral reef is home to sea turtles, eels, and over a thousand tropical fishes of all sizes.
Then waddle over and meet rockhoppers, African penguins, and little blue penguins at the penguin exhibit. Be amazed as you visit the Amazon forest to see exotic piranhas, poison dart frogs, and electric eels without leaving Boston as you tour the New England Aquarium.
Experience the largest shark and ray touch tank on the east coast, featuring sharks and rays in a mangrove-themed tank surrounded by shallow edges and viewing windows. Reach out and gently touch the backs of cownose rays, Atlantic rays, and sharks as they swim gracefully through the water. The exhibit presents these incredible species in a way that highlights their importance in a healthy ocean ecosystem. It also emphasizes the value of conserving essential coastal habitats, such as mangroves and lagoons. There's so much for you and your family to learn as you get up close and pet sharks and rays or just admire the snapdragons, seals, and many other marine animals.
No tour of Boston would be complete without spending a day at the New England Aquarium on Boston's Central Wharf. Book your visit now for discounted admission and a day of education fun for the whole family.

Although we didn't get to tour the complete Aquarium, few probably ever do, we loved seeing the different areas. The penguins were our favorite, if we had to choose one. They are such caring birds and loveable towards their mates. Gladly recommend this as a place to visit.
