Mystic Aquarium: Learn About Beluga Whales

Wednesday, February 1, 2023
11:00 am12:00 pm

With a personal tour guide leading the program, we’ll bring the Aquarium habitats right to your Zoom!

With their distinct color and shape, belugas are considered to be the most easily distinguishable of all whale species. They may be best known for their most unique feature- their bulging melon. Some other notable distinctions include their dorsal ridge (most whales have fins) and their ability to easily navigate in both shallow river mouths and estuaries as well as ocean depths of over 2,500 feet. Guests can see all of this for themselves right from Mystic Aquarium’s Arctic Coast, the largest outdoor beluga whale habitat in the United States (at 750,000-gallons)
