What's New

June 11, 2020

Numerous health and safety measures have been put in place to protect visitors and staff members.

The Aquarium is open to the public on Sunday, June 14, at 9:00 a.m. Regular hours will be Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. All visitors, including members and those already holding tickets, must reserve an entry time on our website before coming to the Aquarium.

Keeping our guests and staff safe is our top priority. The Aquarium is limiting the number of visitors, requiring advance timed reservations, managing traffic flow to ensure social distancing, requiring face coverings for everyone age 2 and older and temperature checks for everyone, providing numerous hand-sanitizing stations, sanitizing surfaces constantly, and much more. Please visit our Aquarium Safety page for full details before visiting.

Visitors will have the chance to experience the Aquarium’s new Coral Reefs: Nature’s Underwater Cities exhibit. Explore the beauty and diversity of coral reefs and their animal residents in the Aquarium’s newly reimagined Tropical Pacific Gallery, and experience a stunning virtual dive in the Honda Pacific Visions Theater. Learn about coral reefs, the threats they face, and what you can do to help save them. And meet some new residents, like a green sea turtle, flashlight fish, and red-footed booby.

Food and beverages are available for sale, and touchless water bottle refill stations are available. Please note that we are not allowing re-entry at this time. Everyone is required to purchase an online timed ticket in advance or reserve a free entry time if they are a member, already have a ticket, or wish to use a coupon. Please go to our Visit page for more details.
