Long Description:
The Bermuda Aquarium, Museum, and Zoo is the place to be if you like animals! The day Blasterz were there, we enjoyed the beautiful sea turtles, seals, and other marine creatures that swim and recuperate here. This zoo is well known for its animal rescue and rehabilitation mission.

From the Bermuda attractions website:

"Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo (BAMZ)
A Top Attraction in Bermuda

Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo, also known as the BAMZ in short, is one of our favorite attractions in Bermuda. Located in the picturesque Flatts Village in Hamilton parish, BAMZ was founded in 1926. It offers 3 different attractions in Bermuda in the same complex, the Aquarium, the Museum and a Zoo. You need to budget 2 to 3 hours to enjoy the whole of BAMZ. We would usually visit the complex when the one-hour free guided tour begins. The free tour starts at 1:10pm daily during the high season (April - September). In the other months, the tour takes place only on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Aquarium is really the primary attraction at the BAMZ. We would always begin our tour by first collecting a sound-stick at the entrance. It plays recorded commentaries as you explore the many tanks showing Bermuda’s underwater ecosystem. The main centerpiece of the Bermuda aquarium is the 140,000-gallon "North Rock" tank, a living replica of one of Bermuda’s spectacular coral reefs. It’s one of the largest live coral collections in the world.

You can find a variety of marine life including barracuda and shark. You can even stick your head into a giant Plexiglas bubble and experience the sensation of diving into a coral cave. At the Aquarium, you'll see tropical fish, parrotfish, tiger fish and moray eels, and even crabs & spiny lobsters. Over 100 species of fish and invertebrates on display here. There is an outdoor pool housing harbor seals. Feeding times for these seals are at 9am, 1:30pm and 4pm daily. A brief presentation is given about the marine mammals following the feedings. The Aquarium has some green turtles housed in an outdoor pool."
