Spring Break Visit Tips

Plan Ahead for the Best Visit Possible!


When you visit Newport Aquarium this Spring, you’ll get to experience the brand-NEW Hatchling Harbor, Dare to Cross Shark Bridge, and visit with all your favorite animals like sharks, penguins and the NEW Weedy Sea Dragons!

Here are some great Visitor Tips to help you plan your best visit possible!

1. Don’t Miss Out! Get Tickets or Make Your Reservation In Advance! 

We strongly recommend purchasing your tickets or making your reservations in advance to ensure you get to visit on your preferred date and entry time. Popular days and times do sell out. If you wait to purchase tickets at walk-up, you may need to wait hours for the next available entry time or find there is no remaining ticket availability.


2. Get Your Tickets Early To SAVE!

The best way to save on admission is to buy your tickets early with Plan-Ahead Pricing! The further in advance you purchase your tickets, the more you can save. Lock in your tickets today for the lowest possible price!


3. Visit During Extended Hours

Visit on a weekday after 3:00pm and see different animal behaviors, catch late afternoon feedings or meet a biologist providing care. Plus, touring your Aquarium in the evening can be a fun family night out! Check out the operating calendar when planning your visit.


4. Expedite Your Entry

You can present your tickets digitally using your phone. Please have them open and your phone turned to max brightness. Having your Tickets, Annual Passes or Membership Cards out and ready help to provide for a quick and smooth entry process.


5. Show You Annual Pass or Membership & SAVE!

Remember to show your Annual Pass or Membership to receive a discount on all of your food and souvenir purchases! Plus, Annual Passholders and Gold & Platinum Annual Members can share your Aquarium with friends and family when you take advantage of your Bring-A-Friend Free Days benefit April 23 – 28!
