A message from the Oregon Coast Aquarium!
We are elated to be opening our doors on Monday, August 10th. We will open initially with all five outdoor exhibits only. The reopening follows new guidance released by the Oregon Health Authority on Tuesday allowing zoos, museums, drive-in movie theaters, raceways, outdoor gardens and aquariums to open non-interactive outdoor exhibits during phase one of the state’s reopening plan. Previous guidance did not allow such facilities to reopen until phase two.
Beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, aquarium interpretive experts will provide guests with insight into some of the aquarium’s biggest draws, our outdoor exhibits. The new experience includes the turkey vultures, sea otters, pinniped (seals and sea lions), seabird aviary and rocky habitat exhibits. According to state guidelines, groups will be limited to 10 people, with one group admitted every 15 minutes — that’s 40 guests per hour, or about 240 a day, a drastic reduction from the aquarium’s typical daily summer traffic of thousands. Tickets will cost $15 per person unless you are a member and then they are free.
