CAMDEN, NJ, February 7, 2022 – Do you believe in underwater magic? You will after visiting the Adventure Aquarium’s Mermaids experience where underwater enchantment awaits and imagination comes to life.
In celebration of the Aquarium’s 30th birthday, Mermaids returns to Adventure Aquarium (1 Riverside Drive, Camden, NJ 08103) for the first time since 2019. Mystical mermaids will charm visitors every Thursday to Sunday from February 24 through March 13, 2022.
“The best way to celebrate the Aquarium’s 30th birthday is with a little magic from mermaids,” said Molly Deese, Adventure Aquarium Executive Director. “It’s been over two years since mermaids have appeared at Adventure Aquarium, and we’re thrilled to have them back to entertain and mesmerize new and returning guests.”
For a limited time, visitors to Adventure Aquarium will have a unique opportunity to see real-life mermaids dive beneath the waves and swim among 15,000 amazing animals in the 550,000-gallon Shark Realm exhibit, wade with the stingrays above the waves, and meet their favorite mermaid for a photo!
Family-friendly Mermaids programming includes:
Adventure Aquarium and the mermaids are committed to ocean conservation and improving the health of the world’s oceans for the animals that live there. The mermaids are eager to share their passion for conservation and ways families can help long after their visit, including saying no to single-use straws and plastic bags. Guests are encouraged to learn more and ask the mermaids why clean water is crucial for land and ocean life and how humans help reduce plastics in the ocean.
Mermaids is included with daily tickets and Adventure Aquarium Memberships. Reservations are strongly encouraged. To purchase tickets, please visit https://www.adventureaquarium.com/explore/special-events/mermaids. An exclusive Members-only preview event will also be held on Wednesday, Feb. 23.
