FAQ: SEA LIFE Annual Pass

We will extend all annual passes, that are valid after March 17th 2020 with no extra charge. The time that the annual pass will be extended to is depending on the final closing time of our attractions. For example: 

    • 5-8 weeks closed: Extension by 2 months
    • 9-12 weeks closed: Extension by 3 months

The basis for this extension is the final closing time of the attraction in which you purchased your annual pass. 

We will take care of the extension for you. It will be done automatically, so you don't have to do anything. It is not necessary to print out your SEA LIFE annual pass again. The new validity date will be automatically updated in our systems.

Every SEA LIFE annual pass that has been already purchased will keep its validity. The period of validity will start on the first day of activation in one of our attractions.

Due to the temporary closure, the period of activation of the online tickets will be extended: After the reopening of our attractions you have six weeks to activate your annual pass. 

Please keep in mind that the SEA LIFE annual pass can only be activated in the SEA LIFE location over which you purchased the pass online. 

We have updated our options for extensions for all SEA LIFE annual passes that are expiring/have expired while we were closed. We offer you to extend your annual pass for the regular extension price if you extend it within a month after the attraction's reopening.

You will get a new annual pass for your extension. The new expiration date depends on the day on which you activated your extension.

Extending or using the annual pass after the given deadline is not possible.

You can activate and collect your new SEA LIFE annual pass within a month after the attraction reopened. You will receive a new annual pass. The new expiration date depends on the day on which you activated your extension at site. Please keep in mind that you can only activate and collect your annual pass at the SEA LIFE location where you purchased it online.
