What is there to do?

Who is ready to explore the oceans and the waters of the Earth! Don't worry kids, at New York Aquarium you don't even have to get wet to really come face to face with the weird and wonderful creatures that live below the waters surface.

Kids can enjoy interactive shows at the Aquatheater, there sea lions are in the forefront and kids can really see the bonds that they have with the trainers, and how clever they really are!

It's a great way for kids to really learn about the sea lions too, and watch them in a natural style environment.

The Conservation Hall is where kids can enjoy a snorkler's eye view of colorful marine life, and see what really happens in a coral reef. With different species of fish of all different shapes, sizes and colors, it's a fun experience even for the smallest of kids!

Let's not forget the Sea Cliffs exhibit at New York Aquarium, where kids can spot many ocean species that live among the rocky shores. The penguins will be playing, when they are not using the cliffs for nesting, and the seals, sea otters and walrus can be found as they rest out of the water!

What would an aquarium be without sharks and rays, and New York Aquarium is no different! Here, kids can learn that not all sharks are aggressive, and a lot of species shouldn't be considered a danger to people at all! even the San Tiger Sharks that swim with their mouth open!

New York Aquarium have fun animal feedings which allow kids to see another side of these cute creatures, as well as 4D Theater experience that is unlike anything they have ever experienced before!

So what are you waiting for, kids? The wonders of under the ocean are waiting, and it's all at this New York Aquarium!
