Atlantis Explorer Tour Boat

Get ready for an interactive and educational 2 hour adventure aboard the Atlantis Explorer.  It’s a fascinating way to discover the ecological wonders of Long Island’s waterways.

The Atlantis Explorer Tour Boat takes you down the Peconic River and into Flanders Bay. Conducted by Aquarium Educators, the adventure offers plenty of opportunity for hands-on exploration while promoting environmental awareness and education about the Peconic Estuary.

The Atlantis Explorer Tour Boat sets sail seasonally (weather permitting) directly behind the Aquarium. You do not need aquarium admission to ride the tour boat, but you do need to check in at the main registers in the aquarium no later than 15 minutes before your sail time.
