Your safety is our number one priority, and we will maintain many of the restrictions throughout your journey around the aquarium to minimise risk without compromising our unique underwater experience.
While we will maintain many of the safety measures in place, we all need one another to adhere to make your visit pleasant for others. If you’re planning to visit Blue Planet Aquarium, please take a moment to read through our visitor charter below.
