Atlantis Aquarium: Understanding the Sea Life and the Great Outdoors

The town of Riverhead on Long Island is presently undergoing revitalization. Part of the change in the downtown area is the grand opening of the new Atlantis Marine World.

On the positive side, this new aquarium is a very nice day trip. There are a group of eighty displays of all kinds of tropical and sea life. You are first greeted by a seal display outside which is open and airy and has lots of natural rocks and water displays with which to view the seals as they romp and swim.

Once inside the building there is a wonderful touch tank set up which allows children to touch stingrays and harmless sharks. This may be the only chance some children get to witness this type of sea life up close. It is a very open area with lots of room for lots of children to partake in the activities. A nice touch was added when they put a sink to wash the hands before and after touching the fish.

From there is a bridge and rock display that shows you a beach area and flounder up close as well as tiger sharks. It is nicely landscaped and displayed. The signs, which tell about the displays, give good information on the breeds of fish and are simple and easy for the young one's to read and relate too.

The organization that runs this aquarium works out of Montauk Point in trying to save turtles and whales that have lost there way and get washed up on the beaches. A large room is set up to show the medical rescue team labs and the tanks they utilize to isolate sick animals in their care.

Other interesting displays include a tropical coral reef. This is simulated with an artificial shipwreck. There are plenty of butterfly fish, sea anemones, and other wonderfully colorful breeds of tropical fish. Separate tanks are also displayed with Piranha, Octopus, and Sea Horses.

One huge tank in the center display showcases large white sharks, as well as a huge 8-foot Moray eel. This is a double display that continues to the second floor where you can glance down upon this tank. At this location is a Marine life associate who stands and answers any questions you might have.

On the second floor is also a series of cut out caverns that display various types of tropical fish, such as Groupers. They also have a submarine simulator that replicates an underwater dive. They charge two dollars extra for this.

Outside is a mid-size arena where there is daily sea lion shows given. The price of this is included in the admission.

There is a Gift Shop and a snack bar café located in the main area also.

In a negative tone I find the admission to get in very overpriced. I have been to aquariums all over the United States and being this is really a very small operation I found the price too high,

I am definitely a believer in the rescue and return to the oceans of our larger sea life. However, the area where they show you the rescue work accomplished is inundated with moneyboxes, signs, and requests for funding. In the one room, there must be at least twenty boxes for donations. I think the work done is wonderful, I just feel the request for funding can be done in a more tasteful manner.

That said, if you have a spare afternoon and you are looking for a great spot to introduce your children to the marine life around them, then start with this aquarium.

I think the aquarium is a very nice entrance into getting children and adults to all appreciate all the wonderful sea life that surrounds us.

Their hours of operation are 9a.m to 6 p.m. They are located at 431 East Main Street, Riverhead, NY
