CORPUS CHRISTI, TX –This Sunday, November 5, the Texas State Aquarium will host families for Dollar Day presented by H-E-B.  An admission price of $1 for all visitors will allow access to all exhibit areas, including the new up-close and personal interactions throughout the Caribbean Journey experience.  H-E-Buddy will also be available for photo opportunities with visitors.

“We are thrilled to join H-E-B once again to give families and individuals a chance to enjoy all the sights and sounds of the Aquarium, especially our new Caribbean Journey, for just $1 a person,” said Tom Schmid, President and CEO of the Texas State Aquarium. “H-E-B has long been one of our most dedicated and generous partners, and our Dollar Day guests will be able to see their newest exhibit, the 400,000-gallon H-E-B Caribbean Sea.”

The H-E-B Caribbean Sea 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 Aquarium display window in North America, or travel through an underwater tunnel to see sharks swimming right over their heads.

“H-E-B is honored to be part of the growing expansion of the Texas State Aquarium. The H-E-B Dolphin Room, H-E-B Splash Park and the newest H-E-B Caribbean Sea exhibits all continue to offer families unique experiences and memories they can cherish year after year,” added Rob Hall, H-E-B Gulf Coast Group Vice President.  “We are grateful for the opportunity to give back to the community and help families find joy in spending time together.”

Hours for the Nov. 5 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.
