Subaquatic Adventure: Walking Beneath Sharks at Spectacular New York Aquarium
Celebrate Shark Week by walking under the sea as sharks swim overhead at one New York aquarium.
Take the family on an unforgettable journey at Via Aquarium in Schenectady, New York. Explore 37 exhibits where you can watch sharks swim overhead while schools of fish surround you in the immersive tunnel tanks.
Walk through 25,000 square feet of aquatic treasure, visiting over 2,000 creatures of the sea.
You can feel the soft, smooth skin of a stingray as they swim right up to your hand in Stingray Bay. Stingray feedings are held every day at 12 & 4 PM.
Sleep With Sharks Soon
You may soon be able to spend the night with sharks too. The aquarium sleepover which included a guided tour, dinner, crafts, and a movie was suspended when the coronavirus pandemic hit, but it may be coming back.
