Are face masks required?
All guests ages two and over are required to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth at all times.
Guests may temporarily remove their masks when eating while sitting six feet from others outside of their household. All masks must be at least two layers, not have vents or valves, and scarfs, bandanas, and gaiters are not allowed. Those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine must still wear a mask and follow all safety protocols. Those who do not follow this policy will be asked to leave.
What safety measures do you have in place?
All visitors will have their temperature checked before entry. Those with a temperature of 100.4F and above and those in their party will not be allowed to enter.
The maximum party size is six to enter and travel within the Aquarium. All family units will be required to maintain a minimum distance of six feet at all times from staff and other visitors. (Adults will be responsible for ensuring their children follow this rule.)
