Swim with Mermaids

Your little one will be delighted to swim with our real, live mermaid, as she navigates the Shark Reef Lagoon, filled with gorgeous tropical fish from all over the world. This is a magical, interactive experience you can’t get anywhere else. But time and space is limited, so reserve your spot today!

Designed for participants of all ages (children must be beyond diaper age, and accompanied by an adult if under 7), Shark Reef Lagoon offers an opportunity to experience the beauty and magic of tropical snorkeling – right on Long Island. We encourage you to wear your bathing suit, but we do have available wet suits should you need one.  You can also bring your own snorkel gear (mask, flippers and mouthpiece) or we have brand-new ones available for purchase.

Starts July 8 and runs through Labor Day.
Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays and Mondays at 10:30am; 11:45am; 1:30pm; 2:45pm, 4pm*
(*4pm is only available on Sunday).
$45 per person ($40.50 for members). Aquarium admission fee is not included and is required.
