The health and safety of our guests and our staff is always our top priority and we will take all necessary precautions to ensure their continued welfare. At our resorts and attractions, we have implemented enhanced cleaning regimes, increased the availability of hand sanitization products and have adopted recommended practices and government recommended guidelines as appropriate, to maintain a safe environment.

In accordance with local government ordinances, face coverings must be worn by all guests. Those under the age of 5 years are exempt from this requirement. Our teams are alert to signs of coronavirus symptoms and understand the importance of good hygiene. Like many businesses, we continue to monitor the situation closely and are in regular contact with local authorities so we may respond quickly to any developments.

We will also collect contact information for your party upon entry to comply with local mandates.

Frequently Asked Questions

Due to local health regulations, masks or face coverings are required to be worn while in the attraction.  Those under the age of 5 years, or who have a health condition that would get worse if a mask is worn are exempt from this requirement. Guests risk being refused entry if they do not follow these guidelines due to local government mandates. 

Due to additional safety measures, changes in operation may result in limited access to certain offerings, but we will offer guest access to as many features of the attraction as possible.

  • Submarine Children's Play Area
  • Doodle Reef
  • Educational Talks and Feeds

  • Re-entry to the aquarium is not available to maintain our current capacity guidelines

We are only accepting contactless payment methods and the use of debit/credit cards to combat the spread of COVID-19.

To deal with capacity restrictions due to COVID-19, tickets do not allow for re-entry. Once inside the aquarium, you may stay as long as you wish however you are not able to leave and return later in the day.

Please note that we are operating under reduced capacity and there may be a short wait to enter to help ensure social distancing. Additionally, we are not able to offer re-entry to help with capacity issues and we also have implemented a one-way system through the aquarium to keep all guests moving in the same direction.
