CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – This Sunday, February 18, the Texas State Aquarium will host families and guests for Dollar Day presented by H-E-B. On Dollar Day, admission to the Aquarium is just $1, allowing guests to experience many of the new exhibits and attractions at a special rate.

“H-E-B has been a loyal partner for over 35 years and a longtime supporter of our local communities. We are excited to once again join with H-E-B to offer residents of the Coastal Bend and beyond the chance to enjoy the Aquarium for just $1 per person,” said Tom Schmid, President and CEO of the Texas State Aquarium. “Among the exciting exhibits and attractions our Dollar Day guests will be able to enjoy are the H-E-B Dolphin Room and the 400,000-gallon H-E-B Caribbean Sea habitat.”

The H-E-B Caribbean Sea habitat is the largest aquatic exhibit in Caribbean Journey and contains a life-size shipwreck, sharks, stingrays, a goliath grouper, and other aquatic species. Guests can view the H-E-B Caribbean Sea from a jungle overlook, take in the view from the longest display window in North America, or travel through an underwater tunnel to see sharks swimming right over their heads.  The H-E-B Dolphin Room gives guests an up-close look at the Aquarium’s four bottlenose dolphins, Shadow, Kai, Liko, and Schooner. H-E-B also sponsors the H-E-B Splash Park, a popular water playground, which will be open to Aquarium guests during Spring Break and the summer months.

Hours for the Feb. 18 H-E-B Dollar Day are 10 a.m. – 5p.m. Children 2 and under will receive free admission, and parking is included with admission. Due to the significant increase in attendance on Dollar Days, regular presentations and visitor programs will not be provided.
