New York Aquarium
Things to Do
Pacific octopus, moon jellies, zombie worms, and more. Weird and wonderful invertebrates may lack backbones, but they’re the backbone of our ocean. See them up-close and learn why.
Ocean Wonders: Sharks!
Go below the surface and meet the amazing animals, including sharks, rays, sea turtles, and more, that live right off the Coney Island Boardwalk.
In our interactive show, the bonds our sea lions have with their trainers take center stage. The animals learn behaviors from them that stimulate their natural instincts and aid in their care.
Young children can explore a kelp forest, coral reef, and the sandy shore - and transform themselves into sharks, sardines, or whales in this bilingual exhibit! They’ll also get hands-on with marine animals at the Touch Pool.
This outdoor exhibit is a great place to breathe in the ocean air, and spend quality time with sea otters, sea lions, harbor seals, and penguins.
Stroll the long halls to explore a variety of aquatic habitats and the fish that reside there. Don’t miss coral reefs and clown fish, and discover WCS scientist's efforts to protect these fragile ecosystems.
