Great news, everyone! The Monterey Bay Aquarium will be reopening to Aquarium members on May 1-14 and to the general public on Saturday, May 15. Tickets go on sale to Aquarium members on April 26 at 9am and to the general public on Wednesday, May 5 at 9am.
The Aquarium has made some changes to help keep everyone safe and healthy while you enjoy your visit.
1) To limit the number of people inside the Aquarium, you'll need to reserve tickets on the Aquarium's website for a specific date and entry time.
During busy times, they may have to limit the number of people purchasing tickets on the website at one time. If this happens, you’ll join a line to make reservations. When it's your turn, you'll be notified and will have 10 minutes to start your reservation.
2) All guests ages three and older must wear a face covering that covers your mouth and nose. The Aquarium has great masks available for purchase if you need one! (All purchases from the Aquarium shop support the nonprofit Aquarium and its work.)
3) To keep everyone spaced out and moving in one direction, you’ll follow a one-way path through the Aquarium. Some of the play areas, feedings and auditorium programs are on pause for now, but you'll still be able to enjoy the animals and exhibits, including the amazing views and fresh air from the oceanfront decks.
Monterey Bay Aquarium is located at 886 Cannery Row in Monterey. Please visit the website for more information.
