Immerse yourself in the adventure of a lifetime! Our Shark Dive puts you inside a cage – right in the middle of circling sharks and an array of fish that cannot be found together anywhere on Earth.
An extreme adventure like no other, Shark Dive is an experience that puts you nose-to-nose with some of the ocean’s top predators inside our 120,000-gallon Lost City of Atlantis Shark Exhibit. No diving certification is necessary, and a trained Shark Dive Instructor accompanies all participants (must be 12 or older; ages 12-17 must be accompanied by parent/guardian).
Please note that all participants must sign and return a Liability Waiver prior to their dive.
Shark Dive participants are provided with everything necessary for their dive, including wetsuit, scuba gear, and an underwater mask that allows normal breathing and underwater communications.
Each Shark Dive adventure consists of an educational program about sharks, including a guided tour of their habitats, a lesson and safety briefing, and the dive itself.
There’s no better – or safer – way to experience the captivating allure of sharks than with our Shark Dive.

As you cross the wooden bridge over Long Island Aquarium’s Lagoon, look both ways to view a miniature panorama of Long Island – the towering bluffs and rock-strewn beaches of the North Shore on one side, and the rolling dunes and salt marshes of the South Shore on the other.
The fish represented in this exhibit reflect those that one might see off the shores of Long Island. All of the fish in this exhibit have been caught locally, typically in the Peconic Bay or Shinnecock Bay.
In addition to sand sharks, one of the most abundant sharks on the US Atlantic coast, the Lagoon features much fish common to Long Island waters, including striped bass, smooth dogfish sharks, weakfish, fluke, clearnose skates, tarpon, and many more!
