Join us for a FIN-tastic Birthday Party at the New York Aquarium!

Invite your guests to celebrate your birthday and see the new exhibit Ocean Wonders: Sharks! Birthday parties combine unique animal encounters, games, crafts, and a trip to the sea lion show to make your ocean lover's birthday unforgettable. An Aquarium Educator will lead the activities and take care of all your needs. All you have to do is supply the cake, beverages, paper goods, and utensils, and we’ll take care of the rest!

New York Aquarium birthdays are designed for children ages 3 to 11.

Each party package is two hours and includes:

  • Aquarium admission for you and your guests
  • Time to visit Ocean Wonders: Sharks! after the festivities
  • Choice of digital or printed invitations
  • Marine themed goody bags for the children
  • A visit with a live animal
  • Feed fish on exhibit with an Aquarium Keeper
