Plan Your Visit

We want our guests to have the best deep sea adventure possible!

Follow these tips when planning your visit to have the best underwater experience.


The Aquarium is open 365 days a year! Our hours change seasonally, we do close early some evenings for private events. Check the calendar on our website before swimming by.


Worried about crowds? We highly recommend planning your visit outside of our peak hours of 11am to 2pm on weekdays and 11am to 4pm on weekends/holidays.


Swimming by without pre-purchased tickets? We suggest dressing according to the weather as our lines to purchase tickets sometimes extend outside of our facility during peak times and seasons. Don’t worry though, you won’t need sunscreen for the rays INSIDE the Aquarium!


Please note that once your ticket has been scanned on the day of your visit, you cannot leave and re-enter. Please visit Guest Services if you need to leave under special circumstances.


Visiting during peak times when guest flow is high? Ease your experience by leaving the stroller at home/in the car or only using a small umbrella stroller.


Want to take the best photo? Quick tip – avoid using flash photography! Please note that we only allow hand held cameras onsite and do not permit any additional equipment with general admission.

Please note that you may take photos/videos as long as it is not for commercial use. For commercial film/photography shoot inquiries, please check out our o-fish-al request form here
