Book Your Next Visit

In order to provide safe indoor entertainment and maintain social distancing guidelines, we are reducing and managing our daily capacity. That means you’ll have even more room to enjoy your aquarium! All Annual Passholders are required to make an advance online reservation prior to visiting.

You can have 1 active reservation in place at a time and can make that reservation up to 45 days before your planned visit date. Once you've used that reservation or cancelled it, you can make another for your next visit.
