PORTSMOUTH —Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation is now hosting birthday parties and can bring a life-sized inflatable fin whale to your next birthday party or event.

At the end of 2014, Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation welcomed a new addition to the family, a 65-foot inflatable fin whale for educational programs and events. The whale is modeled after a real fin whale—Ladder, who Blue Ocean Society has been studying since 1996. Fin whales are the second largest animals to ever live on the planet reaching lengths of 60-70 feet long and weighing around 70 tons. The model is available for indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) programs at schools, libraries, Scout meetings, and now birthday parties and other events. Blue Ocean Society has partnered with the Rye Congregational Church and other venues in the Seacoast Region to provide space for birthday parties and events with the inflatable whale for families who do not have the space available.
