Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Guests can participate in training sessions, art making

  The New England Aquarium is now offering special encounters with its resident Atlantic harbor seals – a chance for guests to take part in training sessions. The daily programs provide an exclusive inside-the-exhibit experience. Guests can learn about these marine mammals’ habitats, conservation efforts and the care provided at the Aquarium with two different encounters:

Meet and Greet: Atlantic Harbor Seals

  • Interact with the seals by participating in a training session where guests will learn about the biology of the animals, explore how trainers communicate with them, and have an opportunity to ask the harbor seals for behaviors – like wave and spin.

Make Art with Atlantic Harbor Seals

  • Join Aquarium trainers for a meet and greet with the harbor seals plus an art-making session. Guests will choose up to four paint colors for a custom work of art made by one of the seals, which will be theirs to take home.

  The 30-minute encounters are offered every day at 3:15 p.m. for a maximum of four people. Guests must be at least seven years old to participate. For more information and to book an encounter, visit neaq.org/visit/animal encounters.
