Mystic Aquarium, Mystic, CT  2015

Mystic Aquarium is home to three beluga whales housed in an outdoor 750,000 gallon pool covering about one acre.  I think this is Naluark, the largest beluga whale on exhibit here weighing in at over 2100 lbs.  He was born in 1986 and is just a little over 13 feet in length.

  1. Hi Ed,

    I run a Mystic info site, I found your site while searching for photos of Mystic to use in a book I'm co-authoring. You have some great images, and I'd love to use a few in the book. I couldn't find any other way to contact you other than through this comment form, and I hope you see it. If you're interested, please contact me through Thanks so much!
