The mermaids are back at the Virginia Aquarium!

Now through April 2 on Monday evenings, you can see a real-life mermaid from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m swimming through the aquarium’s Aquarium’s Red Sea Tunnel.

This is a special, after-hours event at the aquarium. You might even get to meet King Neptune during your visit.

Don’t miss your opportunity to meet some of the mermaids at the Ray Touch Pool, Norfolk Canyon Aquarium and at the Chesapeake Bay Aquarium. This year’s mermaid spectacular also includes story time with a mermaid, a mermaid puppet show, live musical performances by the “C-Shells” and more.

Reservations are required for this limited event. You can buy your tickets on their website or by calling Guest Services at (757) 385-FISH (3474) for a credit card reservation. To enable full viewing of the mermaids by guests, strollers are discouraged for this event.
