Texas State Aquarium Reopens Following Hurricane Harvey

CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – – The Texas State Aquarium re-opened at 12:00 pm Monday, August 28 and will stay open until 5:00 p.m. The Caribbean Journey and the outdoor exhibits will be accessible to guests while the indoor Gulf of Mexico exhibits will remain closed. On Tuesday, August 29, the Aquarium will resume its regular hours of 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Monday through Saturday and 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.

We are pleased to report that, thanks to the dedication and commitment of our ride-out team, all of our animals are doing well. Kai, Shadow, Liko, and Schooner, the Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, are doing well and were moved back to their habitat in Dolphin Bay. Xena, the Linnaeus’s two-toed sloth, Grace the bald eagle, the river otters, and all of the fish and sharks are being cared for by TSA’s Animal Care team.

The Aquarium has not had power restored to our main campus; however, due to our significant on-site emergency power generation, Caribbean Journey is fully operational.  In addition, all of our ground-level exhibits, such as Dolphin Bay, Tortuga Cay, and Otter Creek are all available for viewing. Because of the limited operations, admission will be reduced to $19.95 for adults and $9.95 for children until full power is restored.
