In addition to your tickets, we recommend bringing a water bottle and sunscreen, as it can get hot working with the corals. What if I need to reschedule? If you purchased general admission tickets in advance, but need to reschedule your visit, just shoot us a message and we’ll be happy to accommodate. Do I have to touch the corals? To keep you, and our corals safe, we do not permit GA ticket holders to interact with any of our coral recruits or equipment.
