Mother’s Day

Mom is FREE

Sunday, May 12 | 10am – 4pm

Did you know green tree python moms coil themselves around a clutch of eggs during incubation, but leave their newborn babies to fend for themselves after hatching? That when curl-crested aracaris parent, they share responsibility for incubation, feeding and nest cleaning?  Or that while sea stars can spawn they also have the power to regenerate and create a new life from a detached arm?

We invite you to celebrate parenting in its many forms on Mother’s Day with a family friendly adventure and FREE admission for Mom with the purchase of a child or adult general admission ticket*.

Guests who complete a parenting-themed scavenger hunt during their visit will be entered for an opportunity to win an annual family pass with benefits that include return admission, Nautica Café/Coral Cove Gift Shop/Nautica Queen discounts, free parking during Aquarium visits, special event invitations, discounted programs, a kids club and more.

Families can also create make-and-take salt dough sea stars in the 1st floor classroom and the first 150 visiting moms receive a Mother’s Day button.

*Mother’s Day discount is a BOGO offer – buy one ticket for a child of any age and get one adult mother’s admission free. It can only be applied to in-person admission purchased on Sunday, May 12 between 10am – 4pm at the Aquarium ticket counter. Admission must be used that day and cannot be combined with another offer.
