In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Aquarium is closed to the public and will reopen in accordance with national guidelines. During this time, membership benefits, including the collection of seawater are suspended. Existing members will have their annual memberships extended to compensate for our closure at this time, and those missing the chance to renew their memberships will have the opportunity to do so when we reopen. If you would like to support the Aquarium during the lockdown, you can assist us by renewing a membership or purchasing a day ticket now and redeeming once we reopen.
