Easy access from I-95 or Metro North Railroad, convenient covered parking next door, spacious with an on-site cafe, gift shop, and ATM, the Aquarium is a most excellent family outing, date, or solo visit! The Maritime Aquarium is the only aquarium devoted to Long Island Sound, the “Estuary of National Significance” just outside our doors. As an arm of the Atlantic Ocean, the Sound is an environment rich in aquatic life … even within sight of heavily urbanized New York City. The marine population we exhibit includes varieties of sharks (big and small), harbor seals (in an enormous new habitat), sea turtles, stingrays, game fish, jellies, crabs, lobsters, mollusks, and more. We also exhibit tropical travelers that follow the Gulf Stream north to our waters. Plus we have some other fun animals, from tamarins to meerkats. Guests can safely touch live sharks & rays, jellyfish, and intertidal animals.

The Maritime Aquarium's new 4D cinematic experience sends the action spilling off the two-story screen and over the audience with thrill-enhancing sensory special effects, such as scents, bubbles, wind, mists, and more.
