Thank you to everyone who has been following us during the COVID-19 pandemic. Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park has now reopened. We will continue to follow public health, state, and local government guidelines.

If you are planning a visit for the future, please check back to this page for potential updates or changes as our park operations may have changed while we adapt to the evolving situation surrounding COVID-19. 

We have missed all of our wonderful guests and are excited to be open in a safe manner for all. We welcome you out and are looking forward to having you back at the park.
Our park hours will resume to normal hours of operation, with doors opening at 9:00am and closing at 5:30pm, with admissions closing at 4:30pm. We feel confident in our decision to be open as we are primarily an outdoor, open-air facility. We are also adding several enhanced protective measures to our daily operations to ensure the safety of our staff and guests.
What Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park is doing to keep you safe:

Daily capacity of the park will be limited to 50% to encourage social distancing.

We will be limiting the number of guests permitted in each dolphin and sea lion presentation to a maximum capacity of 50% in order to continue to encourage social distancing.

At this time, we will be accepting credit card transactions only.

Additional sanitization stations have been added to different areas of the park for guests to use.

The Gulfarium team will be cleaning all frequently touched surfaces in accordance with the CDC Guidelines on cleaning and disinfecting.

All Gulfarium staff members will be required to wear masks. There will be some exceptions on a case by case basis while they directly interact with the animals.

During any animal interaction/encounter program, both staff and participants will be required to wear masks because social distancing cannot take place. If a participant does not have a mask, masks will be available to purchase at cost for that animal interaction program.

In any area where you may be asked to wait in line, there will be markers on the ground showing the appropriate social distancing measurements.

There will be certain areas throughout the park where there is one-way traffic only, to continue to encourage social distancing.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your future visit, please call us at (850)243-9046 x 24 or email us at 
We thank you for your continued support.
