New York Aquarium

602 Surf Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11224
Coney Island


The New York Aquarium remains a must-see destination on Coney Island's celebrated Boardwalk. Try to resist the playful charm of its seals, sea lions and walruses. Dare to get close to the shark tank. And see if you can catch the changing colors of Squirt, the mischievous Giant Pacific octopus. The aquarium is open on a partial basis while renovations continue through 2017.
