Fancy Feathers
With their funky yellow crest feathers, the rockhopper penguins are definitely the cool kids in the penguin exhibit. What's with those feathers anyway? It's all about the ladies, learn more here: http://penguins.neaq.org/2011/02/many-people-ask-why-do-those-penguins.html #penguins   #coolkids   #fancy   #feathers

Feeding the hungry, hungry loggerheads
All the sea turtles in the Giant Ocean Tank eat different foods in different places. The loggerheads eat in Turtle Alley. Learn how these hungry, hungry turtles get their breakfast every day at 10am on the Divers Blog!
#stepbystep   #seaturtles   #breakfast   #turtles  
In our Giant Ocean Tank we have 3 species of sea turtles - green, Kemp's ridley and loggerheads. Each species gets their own feeding station, and our loggerheads - Carolina and Retread - are fed at the bottom of the tank, in what we GOT divers call "turtle alley". Each morning at 10:00 AM we ...

Jug Handling: More than just a pretty posture
These hot, steamy summer days are just right for a soak in the pool. But even these animals need to thermoregulate in the 60˚ water. See what jug handling is all about on the Trainers Blog.

#seals   #animalbehavior   #summer  
Whether you're on a raft or a ring or simply bobbing at the surface, who doesn't love a relaxing float in the pool? When the seals and sea lions need a rest, they often take to the pool, too. And that's when you can see a really cool fur seal posture called jug handling.

Egg-laying Event!
It's not every day that you get to see video of pharaoh cuttlefish laying eggs. But that day is today! Follow the link to watch the amazing video.
#cuttlefish   #eggs   #video   #amazing  
The Aquarium is all turtle, all the time this summer. But there are still thousands of other animals, just swimming there and being fascinating! Just this week, the pharaoh cuttlefish began laying eggs. It's a process that can take a couple days. Luckily, aquarist Brianne Dent was on hand to ...

Sea Turtle Slumber
Even sea turtles need their beauty rest. So if you spot a turtle at the bottom of the Giant Ocean Tank, don't panic. They're just sleeping. Take a look: http://divers.neaq.org/2015/06/sea-turtle-siesta.html

Check the Whale Watch Log to see pictures from recent whale watches. You will not be disappointed! #whales   #whalewatch   #ocean   #animals

A giant glass tank spiraled by a multilevel walkway is the main draw at this waterfront attraction.- Google
"But the touch tank has good amount of sea creatures to touch."
"Open your purse for the whale watch, more rip-off."

Overall, a great aquarium. Giant tank in the middle that you walk around on a spiral ramp. The penguins are the best. With kids you'll be there for hours. As adults you could probably see the majority in 45 to an hour. Its really not all that large. Just don't go on a rainy school vacation day... That was a poor life choice.

Amazing place and beautiful creatures. Apparently people don't realize you go for the experience, not the price and they don't realize what the money goes to. Anyways, amazing place I'd go 1000 more times if I could! Reasonable price for the great family experience!

The pinguins get The attention. This is incredibble. The 200.000 gal tank with more than 500 species inside is nothing less that amazing. The last Star will be given once they Pay more attention and keep cleaner The sea mammals area, which looks somehow abandoned.

Visited the aquarium today with my two siblings. Overall, we had a great experience. There was a nice penguin exhibit at entrance, and we spent a few hours exploring the aquarium. We saw a few feedings, and experienced a few touch tanks. Overall, the aquarium is smaller than others I have visited, but it was a pleasant experience nevertheless on a cold wintery day. The only negative impression I have on this experience (the 4/5) is that it was extremely pricey. Tickets for each of us was $30 (included an imax show), and parking was $37. All in all, the three of us spent $127 (before taxes) to visit this aquarium.

I went with my brother and we had loads of fun. We enjoyed seeing the Penguins and Sea Turtles the most. However, I found it to be a little pricey, not too pricey though. Would totally recommend!

I went on a rainy Monday. Lots of folks and kids made it very crowded and loud but I still had a great time. I learned and enjoyed. Be prepared for a $37.00 bill to park in the garage, though. That plus the entrance fee probably makes this a more spendy excursion for a large family.

I can (and have) spent hours with my nose pressed against the jellyfish exhibits at the aquarium, making faces at several species of penguin, and holding mock conversations with sea lions. Keep an eye out for Myrtle, the aquarium’s 550-pound, 45-year-old turtle in residence, and the cuttlefish tank -- a mini-Cthulhu and my personal favorite. If you have questions, aquarium staff give scheduled talks throughout the day.

VERY EXPENSIVE ... I agree with the many comments about this being VERY PRICEY , as 1 person said get out your wallet if you visit ... ......was in the area & Was going to visit the place till I seen how much it was going to cost on their website They consider any child / teen 12 & over as an adult so going by that tickets for adults are $26.95 each for 6 adults ( 4 actual adults & two teens) = $161.70 + an additional $37 for non member parking = $198 70 just for a 4 hour visit ?? NO WAY !!! I knew Boston is not a cheap city as I have been there before, but this was a total sticker shock for us. I know another city that has an aquarium we visited last year only charged $15 for adults aged 16 & over $12 for teens aged 12 to 16 and only $5 for parking There is a fine line between fair pricing and rip off pricing and they have crossed it, We took in a movie instead and saved about $100 ( and parking was FREE )
