Long Island Aquarium
This FINtastic destination features one of the largest all-living coral reef displays in this hemisphere, a 120,000-gallon shark tank, year-round sea lion shows, African penguins, marmosets, numerous touch tanks, and more than 100 exhibits including the lavish indoor Butterfly Garden. You can try one of the JAWsome Aquatic Adventures like the Shark Dive, where you’ll get in the cage and dive down into the amazing “Lost City of Atlantis” shark exhibit—or the Penguin Encounter, where you’ll get up close and personal with adorable feathered friends. You can even snorkel with tropical fish from around the world with the Snorkel Adventure (seasonal). Celebrate your birthday at the aquarium: get free admission (with valid ID) within 7 days of your birthday. There are plenty of special events on the calendar for guests of all ages; check the website for details!
