They have probably  missed us as much as we have missed them! For the health and safety of guests, staff and animals they will implement several changes to regular operating procedures to ensure safety for everybody with fin AND feet.

  • No walk-up ticket sales. Tickets must be purchased online in advance.
  • Face coverings are mandatory for employees AND guests ages 5+ during your visit.
  • Hand sanitizer stations and enhanced cleaning regimens are in place throughout the facility.
  • Only contact-less payment methods are available (credit/debit cards only), no cash.
  • Social distancing markers throughout facility are in place to ensure families keep 6’ distance away from others.
  • Hands-on experiences will not be available, you can observe with your eyes but under the current state order, touch exhibits are not allowed.
  • The café will not be open.

Slated Changes include NO walk up ticket sales.They plan to utilize their timed ticket system to control the number of guests inside the building at any given time to help meet the guidelines set forth by the Governor. 

Per State regulations, they will limit capacity to 25% of occupancy and will allow one family to enter at a time (families must consist of groups of less than 10 people, so plan accordingly) for a maximum of 30 people in each 30 minute time-slot available. 

This will make it much easier to social distance and keep the environment safe for everybody, staff and patrons included.
