Before You Go

Everything you need to know before your Dolphin Tour!

  • In addition to implementing enhanced health and safety measures in response to COVID-19, the Aquarium has limited capacity for tours. Each tour will consist of one family/group at a time with a maximum of eight people. This not only complies with our new safety measures, but also provides a more private, memorable experience for our guests.
  • Mask guidelines apply while on the tour. Learn more about our mask guidelines.
  • Tour participants must be in the same family/group and be able to stand together (less than 6 feet apart) during the tour. The tour guide will adhere to social distance guidelines.

Before your tour, please review the following important information:

  • Wear closed-toe, non-slip shoes.
  • Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of your tour. Check in at the entrance to Dolphin Discovery (at the end of the bridge on Pier 4, Level 1).
  • You'll be asked to sign a waiver when you get here—save time by having everyone in your group sign a digital copy that will be sent to the e-mail address used to make your reservation.
  • Learn more about discounted parking at our partner garages. Bring your parking ticket to the Aquarium to have it validated before leaving.
  • When booking your tour, please notify Central Reservations of any guests with special needs.

There is no age requirement for this program; guests of all ages can participate. All guests under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Participants under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian in order to attend.

Tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable, including if you miss your tour due to late arrival. If the Aquarium cancels your program, you'll have the option to reschedule or receive a full refund.

To ensure that your tour hasn't been canceled due to unforeseen circumstances such as animal health or inclement weather, please call 410-576-8822 the day of your program for cancellation information.

All aspects of this tour are subject to availability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question about your Dolphin Tour? We’ve probably answered it here!

No. This tour does not go behind the scenes, but does include access to staff-only areas.

A parent or guardian must accompany all participants under the age of 16. Minors 16 years of age or older may participate with a signed waiver from a parent or guardian. Parents or guardians accompanying children must be at least 18 years old. For example, a 17-year-old may attend a tour with a signed waiver, but their 10-year-old sibling may not accompany them without an adult.

This tour does not allow guests to touch the dolphins.

Closed-toe, non-slip shoes and comfortable clothing are recommended. Keep in mind that you'll be directly in front of the dolphin's pool, and may get splashed.
