We strive to make every visit and every experience FIN-tastic!
We use an online, timed ticketing system to expedite the admission process and to maintain optimal visitor levels at the Aquarium. ALL tickets must be pre-purchased and member reservations made in advance. We kindly ask guests to do so before arriving.
Before You Pay to Park
Parking at the Aquarium is $5 (April 1 through October 31). Remember to reserve your ticket online before you pay for parking. Parking is always FREE for our Members. Learn more at the link below.
You will notice one-way paths throughout the Aquarium, designed to help guests best navigate the facility and enjoy every exhibit. While the duration of your visit is not limited, we ask that guests follow the one-way path to ensure that every guest can have their best Aquarium experience.
Consider adding a Boat Tour to your visit. You can visit our Boat Tours page to find our schedule. Be sure to watch for featured events, special openings, and behind-the-scenes tour experiences when planning which day and time you want to visit.
Food at the Aquarium
While no outside food is permitted at the Aquarium, be sure to visit our Osprey Café for a variety of delicious food and refreshing beverages. Learn more and find the weekly specials on our Dining & Shopping page.
