The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Take the Kids to the Hamptons


5. An Oddball Day

Kids lend moral support to divers inside the Atlantis Marine World shark cage.  

You don’t need to fly to the Caribbean to have an underwater adventure. Just a half-hour west of the Hamptons, at Atlantis Marine World in Riverhead, kids can spend a half-hour in a cage face-to-face with ten sharks, a 300-pound turtle, seven-foot-long moray eels, stingrays, and exotic fish. For $155 a person, visitors over 12 years old can earn major bragging rights by getting into scuba gear and dunking into a two-story water tank filled with real, live sharks.
