Animals

You can get up close to many exotic water creatures at the NY Aquarium. See a sand tiger shark or the much-loved California sea lion or the sea otter. From small fish to large rays, you can find so much to look at and explore!

Experiences

If the weather permits, be sure to check out a show at the outdoor amphitheater. You can also enjoy watching the sea otter, penguin, or walrus feedings!

While you’re at the aquarium, you may also want to check out what’s happening in Brooklyn and the Coney Island area.
