Long Island Aquarium:
Riverhead, NY



The Key word to describe the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead, Long Island is interactive. Exciting and magical follow closely behind. The Lost City of Atlantis is the central theme. The aquarium  features one of the largest all-living coral reef displays in this hemisphere and a 120,000-gallon shark tank are some of the more popular of the over a hundred exhibits at the aquarium.

The Touch Tank is a real favorite among visitors. It includes sea stars, clams, whelks, hermit crabs, and horseshoe crabs. Our absolute favorite was the butterfly garden and especially the bird feeding room, which is not included in general admission. There colorful birds land on visitors who have the option of feeding them.  The African Penguins and year-round sea lion shows are also a big hit.
