Additional Information

Policies & Procedures

Your tour will last approximately 1.5 hours. Following the tour, you will have time to explore the Aquarium at your leisure. All participants will be asked to sign a waiver. Please wear non-slip shoes (no flip-flops, Crocs, or heels), as we will be entering some behind-the-scenes areas. At the time of booking, please notify Central Reservations of any guests with special needs, including medical conditions.

Cancellation/Refund Policy

Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. There will be no exceptions to this policy. If the Aquarium cancels the program, you will have the option of rescheduling for another date or receiving a full refund. During inclement weather, please call the program line at 410-576-8822 the day of your program for cancellation information.

Arrive Early

To ensure you receive the best experience, please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled program time. As a courtesy to other guests on your tour, your guide is unable to wait for late arrivals. Your tour will meet at the Aquarium staff entrance at Blue Wonders: Reefs to Rainforests.

Stay Late

Your Immersion Tour admission is good for a full day of Aquarium exploration! If you’d like to leave the building and re-enter later that day, get your hand stamped at the main exit of Blue Wonders. Check with a staff member for the last entry time of the day.

Call Ahead

The health of the animals is our primary concern; therefore, any tour may be canceled or modified without notice if it is in the animals' best interest.

If the Aquarium cancels your program, you will have the option of rescheduling for another date or receiving a full refund. To ensure that your tour has not been canceled due to inclement weather or unforeseen events, please call 410-576-8822 two hours prior to the program time on the day of your visit. If you miss your tour due to late arrival, no refund can be provided.
