So here we are on Martha’s Vineyard, surrounded by water and aquatic life…but it’s kind of hard to see! I mean crabs and clams and starfish abound, but what about all of the other life that hangs out in the depths below? Thankfully, the new aquarium in Oak Bluffs (right downtown!) lets us see everything.
Waters of the World features sharks, stingrays, jellyfish, invertebrates, alligators, anaconda, eels, barracuda stingrays and many other exotic fish. They also have special exhibits that showcase the aquatic life and ecosystems from areas around the globe like: the Caribbean, the Nile River, the Amazon, the Everglades and the Great Barrier Reef.
Visit the touching pools, watch the sharks being fed and make sure you check out the retail store where you can start your own home aquarium. Visit www.watersoftheworld.org for details, hours and directions.
