Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
At Marine Mammal Interpretation Centre, get to know magnificent whales through interactive exhibits and life-size sculptures. The attraction boasts an actual sperm whale skeleton measuring over 13 m (40 ft) in length, in addition to videos and sound recordings of eerie whale songs. Huge beluga whale sculptures sit in the surrounding garden, surrounded by local flora. Pick up a souvenir from the gift shop, where proceeds go toward helping the whales. If you plan on going whale-watching in the area, visit this attraction first as an educational precursor.
