Community Days, November 9th-13th, Presented by H-E-B and Whataburger Offers Admission to Texas State Aquarium for $2

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – On November 9th-13th, the Texas State Aquarium will host families for Community Days, presented by H-E-B and Whataburger. On H-E-B and Whataburger Community Days, admission to the Aquarium is just $2 per person, allowing everyone to experience the Aquarium’s exhibits at a deeply discounted rate.

In these challenging times, it is more important than ever to come together for what matters. While we are all working through the COVID-19 pandemic, the Texas State Aquarium and our partners, H-E-B and Whataburger, are here to support our community. Our November Community Days program has been expanded to five weekdays of discounted admission and extended hours of operation. Community Days $2 admission gives access to all the Aquarium’s exhibits, including a 400,000-gallon shark exhibit, Dolphin Bay, the Caribbean Journey jungle, and other indoor and outdoor displays of more than 400 other species from land and sea.

“This year, the Aquarium, with the support of our generous partners H-E-B and Whataburger, are excited to offer five days of discounted admissions to the community, in lieu of a single Community Day. Extending this event over a five-day period will help reduce crowding and keep capacity below the 75% maximum, while providing the community expanded access to the Aquarium.” – Texas State Aquarium President & CEO Tom Schmid.

“H-E-B is thrilled to once again offer families an opportunity to visit the aquarium and create some fun memories.  We hope these few Community Days will allow families to pick a day to escape and learn more about their environment,”  commented H-E-B Public Affairs Senior Manager, Regina Garcia

“The Texas State Aquarium is a special place – something every person in South Texas can be proud of while they learn, have fun and discover sea life up close,” said Jeff Altman, Director of Sponsorships for Whataburger. “In a year when many of us could use some adventure, this partnership allows more people to explore the Aquarium’s exhibits through discounted admission.”

Hours for November 9th-13th Community Days are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Children 2 and under will receive free admission. Regular presentations will not be provided. Tickets are available for sale on-site on Community Days only. There are no tickets available for purchase in advance or online.
