Get ready for a fun-filled hour exploring the fascinating world of marine life, in the beautiful sea-side setting of Tiana Bayside Facility in Hampton Bays, NY.

Bay Buddies is geared for children 3 to 5 years old accompanied by an adult caretaker. (Younger children may be registered and attend, as long as caretaker feels confident in supervising them through the activities, in a setting designed for 3 to 5 year olds).

Our Bay Buddies programs are designed for caretakers and little ones to learn and experience together*. Hands-on, interactive activities include story reading, touch-and-feel learning, age-appropriate art projects, and meeting live marine animals in a safe and fun way. Some activities may take place at the edge of the bay, so dress for the weather and bring an extra change of clothes and towel.

*Caretakers must stay with their registered child for the duration of the program, and be able to assist them in safely interacting with other children, educators, and live animals.

Cancellation Policy

We will issue a full refund for cancellations made at least 24 hours in advance of the event start time. After that it becomes a donation to our habitat and shellfish restoration, and education initiatives. We thank you for your contribution!

If you're registering more than one child, each registration purchased admits one child, accompanied by 1 adult. Additional children should be registered separately, by purchasing additional tickets. We recommend having 1 adult per child, but a single caretaker may accompany up to 2 children.
