If you are looking for a unique adult aquarium experience, try Cocktails with Whales at the Mystic Aquarium. There you you sip cocktails with Beluga whales!

I am not ashamed to admit that I LOVE the aquarium. One of my favorites is the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, Connecticut. I like the layout and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that they have beluga whales. They are such beautiful creatures and Juno, the younger of the 2, has quite the personality. He poses for selfies, photobombs, and starts trouble with the patrons. I recently went to an adults only evening that they have periodically called “Cocktails with Whales” and it is every bit as amazing as it sounds.

First of all, it’s only $10. That gets you in the door to socialize with your friends, coworkers, strangers, and the whales. There is a cash bar and prices are average priced. I nursed my $8 drink the whole 2 hours we were there. People, as a whole were friendly and courteous. Of course everyone wants to be near the tank and get their selfie with the whales but most were pretty considerate of others and moved along after a few minutes so others could have their chance.

Juno did not disappoint. He entertained everyone for 2 full hours. Coming up behind people and smiling, splashing us, and at one point, looking like he wanted to fight one woman. In talking with one of the employees, I learned that Juno loves attention and has quite the personality, He is 16 and is very much “a punk teenager”. The other beluga, whose name escapes me, was content to swim quietly in her area of the tank and let Juno revel in the spotlight.

All in all, it was a fun night out without kids…which we all need sometimes. I would highly recommend it, and for $10 you really can’t go wrong. I got some great pictures of Juno and a pretty funny video of him as well.

  3. That is so perfect for me! I love aquariums, too, and Beluga whales are my absolute favorite. They are such charmers.
