This was the scene on Long Wharf overlooking Boston Harbor yesterday. When high tide and the super moon collide, it's an all too real picture of the future of sea level rise. Check out our blog to understand why this is happening.

Did you know?
Giant Pacific octopus (Enteroctopus dolfleini) have more than 2,200 suckers, which they can use to taste and smell their surroundings.

We just added 16 common cuttlefish to the cuttlefish exhibit. Caution! They are extremely adorable.
But sometimes you might have to exercise your powers of observation to see these little guys. The juveniles often settle into different nooks and burrowed into the sand throughout the exhibit. We've pointed out just a few of them in this handy GIFs. These little guys have had quite the journey, ...

See some of the fascinating features that went into the brand new octopus habitat.
Our newest exhibit is beautiful to behold. Visitors have been wonderstruck by the diversity of species, the colors, and the artistic elements, like the rock formations inside and the sculptural rails along the outside. You might be interested to know that as much care went into designing the ...

Thank you to President Obama for designating the first-ever marine national monument in the Atlantic — Northeast Coral Canyons and Seamounts!

Some fun facts about our new marine national monument:

• This monument is 4,913 square miles, nearly the size of Connecticut.
• It is 150 miles from the coast of Cape Cod.
• The area covers 1.5 percent of U.S. federal waters on the East Coast.
• Hundreds of species have been identified in the Atlantic canyons and seamounts, including stony corals, black corals, soft corals, sea pens, anemones, and sponges.
• The four underwater mountains (or “seamounts”), the only ones in U.S. Atlantic waters, rise as high as 7,000 feet above the ocean floor, higher than any mountain east of the Rockies.
• Over 600 species were identified on just one of the seamounts (Bear seamount).
• Recent research into the winter feeding grounds of Atlantic puffins in the Gulf of Maine found that they migrate to the waters above the canyons and seamounts.
• Whales and dolphins congregate at the continental shelf break above the canyons to feed on abundant prey in these nutrient-rich waters.

A giant glass tank spiraled by a multilevel walkway is the main draw at this waterfront attraction.- Google
"Food at the cafeteria was actually decent- grass fed beef burger!"
"Very fun experience but a bit pricy I would recommend on a rainy day"

We really hope the sharks get well soon. It would be nice to see the octopus in a bigger tank of his own (but not the big tank in the middle shared by a good majority of the aquarium animals... He deserves a bigger screening area where he is the center of attention, and more people can enjoy him, as well as more area for him to live in), he was a very popular animal and we barely were able to see him after waiting a very long time for a small viewing area. The sting ray petting area was amazing. The old turtle was so much fun, so playful. The staff were mostly very friendly. They closed at 6pm, but locked the doors at 530pm, and started pushing for people to leave. The whale bones were extraordinary. All around a good trip, would recommend, hopefully they make a few improvements in the future.

This is an amazing place to visit. The three-storey-tall, cylindrical central tank is stunning, filled as it is with colorful fish, rays, and sea turtles. The aquarium has tens of tanks dedicated to various climates and environments including a penguin habitat, seal exhibit, salt marsh tank, tropical reef, and Amazon piranha tank, among many others. There are also two touch tanks where you can touch starfish, anemones, sting rays, and sharks. The New England Aquarium offers many educational programs as well. It's a great place for children and adults as well. If you are visiting Boston, don't miss this.

Just an aquarium. What would you expect. Plenty of beautiful fish and corals. Main tank in the center, a few floors high/deep, surrounded by a ramp to walk all the way up/down. Around, on the floors, separate aquaria. Exhibition with penguins, sea lions, and also stingrays that can be touched-quite a fun.

This is an incredible place. There is a giant aquarium in the middle that spans like 4 floors. I could just watch the fish there for hours. They have a fantastic interactive display where you can identify the fishes you see. Along the walls are smaller tanks with specific populations on display. It is fun to try to spot all the creatures that should be in there. There are penguins all along the first floor and we happened to be there during a feeding which was awesome. The seals and sea lions were nice, but their enclosure could use some work. All in all, this is well worth the cost of admission. If you are planning to visit multiple sites in Boston, look into getting a City Pass. We didn't discover it until it was too late.

I like aquariums, and this one was fun. Big emphasis on the penguins I guess. The big tank in the center was something I spent a lot of time staring into. They also had so.e cuddle fish which are radder than your average aquarium exhibit.

We are from Upstate NY and let me tell you we had an amazing time! I would recommend the aquarium to anyone who wants a beautiful experience! We can't wait to come back in the nicer weather to take advantage of the whale watching tour!

Not the biggest or best aquarium, but has some good exhibits. The central tank is really nice, and offers lits of good viewing nooks. This place can get crowded on the weekends. If you don't have a membership i recommend buying tickets ahead of time so you don't wait in line for a ling time.
