Mitten's Story


Mittens the Minke Whale is a 20 foot life-size replica of a juvenile Minke Whale spotted off the coast of Maine on August 12, 2022. This curious whale captured our hearts, and we hope we can bring the magic of the experience to children all over New England... many who have never seen a whale! Mittens was named after the white arm bands on common Minkes, often referred to as 'Minke Mittens'.


Mittens is Available for Visits in RI, MA & CT
