Customizable Memberships for Your Family

Dolphin BayTo select the level that is best for your family, you will need to decide how many people you would like cover under your membership. You can name every slot in your membership if you like or you can leave slots open for guests so you can bring someone different each time. Every membership requires at least one named individual. Once an individual is named, that slot is reserved for that member and cannot be transferred to someone else. At least one named individual needs to be present with the membership card and a valid photo ID to use the membership.

Membership is intended for personal, household use.  If you are interested in purchasing a membership for your business or organization please contact our Membership Office for more information.
