Additional Information

In order to provide your group with an efficient check-in experience, we ask that your group arrive together at your scheduled arrival time. Please inform us prior to arrival if guest numbers have changed or if you will be late. A staff member will greet your group and provide an introduction to the Centre.

Length of Visit
Self-guided tours take approximately one hour to complete. Admission is good for the whole day, so guests can leave and come back into the Aquarium until 30 minutes prior to closing.

Bus Loading & Parking
There are a limited number of free 2-hour parking spots in the underground lot that the Centre shares with the Sidney Pier Hotel and Spa. Vehicles must be under 6'6” in height to enter the lot and taller vehicles will need to find parking on the street or use the pay parking lot adjacent to the Centre. For buses, groups can be dropped off and picked up at the main entrance, with bus parking located at Tulista Park or the Mary Winspear Centre.
