None! All of our animal areas are accessible with your Day Pass admission.

We have feeding tokens available to purchase to feed the animals. It’s fun and increases interaction.  Feeding options include stingrays, birds, reptiles and the River Giant Exhibit. Note, to ensure proper care and feeding of the animals, there are times that tokens cannot be used.

All Day! As long as you keep your wristband on, you can come and go throughout the day.

Generally speaking, you can plan to be at the aquarium for 1-2 hours, although many people choose to stay longer and enjoy it for several hours, as the passes are good all day! You can even leave and come back in the same day as long as you do not remove your wristband.

Not more than you normally would, however, we might  recommend an extra shirt for the younger members of your family as our water tables can be, well, wet!
