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.
