Marquee Exhibit

Pinniped Cove

List of Exhibits

Thrill to close views of our five female harbor seals - Rasal, Ariel, Leila, Polly and Tillie - as they explore their enormous new habitat, which also is now The Maritime Aquarium's largest display. 

Opened in June 2021, "Pinniped Cove” lets you follow the seals from three sides and two levels: underwater at floor-to-ceiling windows on the first floor; and above the surface on the second floor. This 22-foot-deep exhibit is more than eight times larger than their original exhibit!

"Pinniped Cove” celebrates seals – members of the pinniped group along with sea lions and walruses – as a conservation success story, through graphic displays that explain how their populations have rebounded greatly in New England.  

Be sure to catch a “Seal-Training Demonstration” to learn more about seals and watch them being fed at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily.
