Exclusive Members-Only Hours and Discounts Offered This Spring at The Maritime Aquarium

Looking for something to do with the kids during spring break? Become a member of The Maritime Aquarium and unlock additional hours of fun! Monday, April 10, through Friday, April 14, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., members will have an extra hour to explore all the Aquarium has to offer before opening to the general public.


On Sunday, April 30, members will also have access to an exclusive breakfast with the Aquarium’s harbor seals. Pancakes with Pinnipeds will feature a before-hours seal training demonstration and a complimentary viewing of the Aquarium’s newest movie “RIO: The 4D Experience.”


“A membership to The Maritime Aquarium is something the entire family can enjoy together,” said Director of Guest Operations Jodi Trice. “Whether you choose to visit the Aquarium during our Member Mornings or our upcoming member-only breakfast with our harbor seals, you will be sure to make your spring – and year – memorable for you and your loved ones!”


Members can regularly purchase discounted tickets to the 4D Theater for $6. “Rio: The 4D Experience,” which premiered in the theater on March 28, follows the story of Blu and Jewel, the last blue macaws on Earth, who must work together to escape the claws of an evil cockatoo while dodging beach balls, umbrellas, carnival floats, and beachgoers.
