Tips for a Great Visit

  • Check program schedule to plan your visit.
  • Arrive early for Wild Flight and dive presentations.
  • When possible, bring baby backpacks or baby slings instead of strollers to get through crowded areas with ease.
  • Wear comfortable shoes.
  • Check weather, as some of our presentations and exhibits are outdoors.
  • To avoid big crowds during the summer months, try visiting during the week. Busiest times to visit are 11:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m.
  • Many schools schedule field trips for March and April. Visit after 1:00 p.m. to avoid larger groups.
  • To avoid long lines at the ticket counter, become a Member of the Aquarium.
