Membership During Our Temporary Closure

Now, more than ever, renewing your membership is one of the best ways to support the Aquarium’s talented staff, the care for our animals, and the fun and educational programming that will continue to serve you, your family and the community. Please consider renewing or upgrading now and know that your membership will be extended for the amount of time that we are closed due to COVID-19. Members may also opt out of the extension as another way to support the Aquarium during this difficult time. Please direct any questions or requests to opt out to membership@scaquarium.org. The membership office will be available via email to assist you during the closure.Thank you so much for your support and we hope to see you soon!
