EVENT DESCRIPTION

Mermaid Mondays, the after-hours event featuring real mermaids swimming in the Aquarium’s Red Sea Tunnel, begins on April 8 and continues each Monday through April 29. The mermaids return with even more friends for special encounters all over the Bay & Ocean Pavilion. In addition, King Neptune will greet guests and activities will be spread throughout the Aquarium.
Guests will also be able to visit with a mermaid at the Ray Touch Pool, Norfolk Canyon Aquarium, and a mermaid at the Chesapeake Bay Aquarium. This year’s event also includes story time with a mermaid, a mermaid puppet show, live musical performances, and other activities and photo opportunities in the Aquarium’s Bay & Ocean Pavilion.



EVENT SPECIAL NOTICES AND INFORMATION

To enable full viewing of the mermaids by guests, strollers are discouraged for this event.

Reservations for this limited engagement are required.

Friday night at Red Robin a vet tech from the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center overheard me talking to my kids about the sea turtles hatching. She shared some videos and photos on her phone. She was so kind and thoughtful! 🙂💙

Nice short

Morning 🌞 world changers of the world

How did they find the nest with the stragglers?

Awwww

Will they go back to aquarium or released in the ocean?

I wish I knew about this. I would have come!

I know there were some recent loggerhead sea turtle nests that hatched. Are there more nests being monitored? It's a full moon this week and if there's a possibility of seeing a "boil" I'd love to make the trip!

Thanks for any information you can provide for VA Beach or other coastal locations where nests have been identified.

There are 9 other nests, 7 of which have not yet hatched, however none of these are in our area of responsibility. One is on a restricted military installation and the others are in the extreme southeastern part of Virginia Beach in an area monitored by Back Bay national Wildlife Refuge. You can check their Facebook page for information about the nests their team is monitoring (www.facebook.com/backbaynwr)

Make this your Friday view...get tickets for the August Craft Brews Cruise before they sell out! Trip departs one week from today!

Thanks to our sponsors O'Connor Brewing Co & Hoffman Beverage 🍻
