Mystic Aquarium will welcome mermaids this March and you can be there to meet them.

The Connecticut aquarium is introducing a magical, mermaid experience for just a few days next month and fans of the fantastical creatures won't want to miss it. It's a chance to see mermaids swimming inside the aquarium's fish tanks and even meet one of dry land.

The first two weekends in March families can enjoy interactive, underwater performances several times a day and it's all included in your general admission ticket.

The shows sound really cool, with the opportunity to stand near a giant tank of water and watch the mermaids swimming in synchronized formations in front of you. No word on if other fish will be in the tanks with them, but that certainly would make things even cooler if you ask me.

From March 2-5 and then again March 9-12 the mermaids will be in the tanks with multiple swims per day.

You can check out the full schedule at the Mystic Aquarium website or even on their Facebook.

Of course in addition to the mermaid swims there are sea lion shows, beluga whales to behold and even tanks of sting rays you can reach in and touch. All part of the fun happening at Mystic Aquarium every day.

Not to mention all the amazing work they do with animal rehabilitation.

Endangered Sea Turtles Released Back into Atlantic Ocean

The Mystic Aquarium Animal Rescue Team saw another set of rehabilitated animals returned to their ocean home recently with the release of five endangered sea turtles down in North Carolina.
One loggerhead sea turtle and four Kemp’s ridley sea turtles were the aquarium's part of a 26-sea-turtle release from four different animal rescues across the Northeast. See these endangered animals as they returned to their ocean home after months of treatment for their cold-stunning damage suffered in Cape Cod Bay.
