Construction Notice: Seal Perimeter Fence

As of April 18, our team is installing fencing around the perimeter of our seal exhibit for the seals’ safety and to comply with USDA regulations. The exhibit will remain accessible during normal operating hours for visitors to observe our seals, and work is expected to be completed within a few weeks.

With thousands of animals and amazing hands-on exhibits, we have gallons of fun for everyone on your self-guided tour through our North Building, South Building, and the Nature Trail. Online ticket reservations are strongly recommended. You may also call Guest Services at (757) 385-3474 to reserve your tickets.
