Newport, Oregon — The Oregon Coast Aquarium (OCAq), located in Newport, Oregon, is often mistaken as the Newport Aquarium, located in Newport, Kentucky.
OCAq encourages everyone to be aware of this common misunderstanding while reading news articles and purchasing tickets.
In light of recent news coverage concerning Newport Aquarium’s decision regarding face covering accommodations, OCAq wants to clarify that anyone in need of special accommodations can contact us to make arrangements.
