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.

The plates have been signed by the Governor of Virginia and we will begin working with the DMV shortly. While we don't have a firm timeline, we are still hopeful that these will begin to be available in mid-late summer 2019.

YES PLEASE!!! 😍🐋 Last time i had a close encounter with whales (1998 on a whale watching cruise from the New England Aquarium) was the same trip I decided marine conservation was my career path... 20 years later I’ve held true to that decision with sea turtles. ❤️

Debbie Sledge - Still some whales out there!

Can you take a closer picture?

Whatever it is, keep it there!!

😩I’m so over snakes this year already I had one in my garage a few weeks ago. We got it out and it went right up into the under carriage of my car. This atleast doesn’t look like a copperhead but I’m no snake expert!

According to our team, it is a harmless northern water snake. 🙂
