Dive deeper than ever before on an underwater journey, National Geographic Encounter: Ocean Odyssey – the ultimate, highly-immersive undersea experience.

You’ll travel to new depths of the Pacific Ocean and come face-to-face with the Ocean’s greatest wonders and mightiest creatures, including humpback whales, great white sharks, Humboldt squid, sea lions, and more during the Ocean Odyssey—all right in Times Square!

Walk through a ‘digital ocean playground,’ 60,000 square feet of the first-of-its-kind interactive cinematic experience created by a team of Academy, GRAMMY®, and Emmy® award-winning artists.

Live audience-tracking technology enables the marine creature to interact with visitors as they make their way through the exhibits, so no two experiences are exactly the same. Experience ground-breaking technology and interact with sea lions, rays, dolphins, and other sea life with photo-real animation, touch screens, holograms, games, and more.

The entire experience is broken up into two parts:

  1. A 45-minute, interactive ‘underwater’ experience that takes visitors deeper into the waters and closer to the creatures than ever before to interact with a variety of animals. Get disoriented by a swirling fish bait ball, watch a pod of dolphins chase away an aggressive predator, get caught up in a battle of epic proportions between two Humboldt squid, and more in this life-like ocean simulation.
  2. An ‘above water’ experience that features informational exhibits, displays, interactive holograms, and more that educate visitors on all of the animals they encountered below the surface. Learn about the animals, their environment, and how you can help protect their habitats.
