Tips for a Great Visit

Check program schedule to plan your visit.
Arrive 15 minutes early for Wild Flight, dive, and dolphin presentations.
When possible, bring baby backpacks or baby slings instead of strollers to get through crowded areas with ease.
Wear comfortable shoes.
Check weather, as some of our presentations and exhibits are outdoors.
To avoid big crowds during the summer months, try visiting during the week.
Busiest times to visit are 11:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m.
To avoid long lines at the ticket counter, become a Member of the Aquarium.
