​Join us as we invite families with children or adults with special needs to visit the Aquarium before we open to the public. See all of our animals and exhibits in a calm, comfortable environment and explore at your own pace. The event begins at 7:30am and continues through opening at 9am, but guests who visit early are welcome to stay for as long as they would like.

Advanced registration is required, and regular admission rates apply

Please note:  One caretaker is admitted at no charge if they are working with a guest who is visiting the Aquarium. A caretaker is defined as a required attendant without whom the guest could not tour the Aquarium. The disabled guest may request an additional caretaker be admitted at 50% of the regular admission.
