Tentacles Take Hold
Get ready to be wrapped up in Tentacles! Look for the giant Pacific octopus in its newly expanded habitat brimming with species found in the chilly depths of the Pacific Northwest. Eye the cuttlefish levitating in its tropical tank while the chambered nautilus jets through its inky dark display. From petite red octopuses to graceful sea jellies, dive into the dazzling diversity of these mysterious ocean animals as Tentacles take hold at the New England Aquarium!
Giant Ocean Tank
Enjoy 360 degree views of a spectacular, four story Caribbean coral reef teeming with more animals than ever before. In 2013, the iconic Giant Ocean Tank underwent a toptobottom, 21st century transformation, including windows that provide crystal clear viewing opportunities; a vibrant, revitalized coral reef with more than 1,000 fishes; and the Yawkey Coral Reef Center at the top of the exhibit. The colorful Caribbean coral reef is home to sea turtles, eels and hundreds of tropical fishes of all sizes.
