What are Feeding Tokens? What are they Used For? 

Answer:  Feeding tokens are used for feeding and interacting with our animals! Feeding tokens aren’t required, but they will elevate your experience to an exciting new level. One token equals about one cup of food. We offer various token packages and recommend purchasing at least 10-16 tokens per visit. Feeding Tokens never expire. They are good any time, any day!

Please note: SeaQuest tokens can be purchased in-store or on our website. Tokens are non-refundable and cannot be redeemed for cash. SeaQuest is not responsible for lost or stolen tokens, so please keep them secure.

What is the Best Time to Visit a SeaQuest Aquarium?

Monday through Thursday are the best days of the week to visit at SeaQuest. Saturdays and Sundays between 11 am and 4 pm are generally the most active time for the aquarium, so if you would like to avoid larger crowds, we suggest visiting before or after those time frames.

How Long Does it Take to Tour a SeaQuest Aquarium?

Answer: If you purchase a General Admission ticket your tour should take approximately 1.5 – 2 hours. Premium Interaction(s) will take an additional 15-45 minutes per activity. If you purchase the VIP Bundle, the entire visit will run approximately 3-4 hours.

I Want to Have a Birthday Party at SeaQuest! Can I book a Private Event and what’s Included?

Whether you are looking to purchase a souvenir of your visit or bring a present back for family and friends, you can find a plethora of goodies such as tee shirts, hats, stuffed animals, and so much more!
