Special Needs Under the Sea at the Aquarium!

May 22 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm UTC-4

Join us as we invite families with children or adults with special needs to visit the Aquarium before we open to the general public. See all of our animals and exhibits in a calm, comfortable, sensory-friendly environment and explore at your own pace. The event begins at 7:30 a.m. and continues until 9:00 a.m., but guests may stay as long as they like after the doors open to the public.

Advanced registration is suggested and regular admission rates apply. Parents and children are free with a membership or pay at the door.

A caretaker is defined as a required attendant without whom the guest could not tour the Aquarium. The disabled guest may request an additional caretaker be admitted at 50% of the regular admission.
