NEWPORT, Ore. – After five months of being closed, the Oregon Coast Aquarium will be opening its doors to the public on Aug. 10.

The aquarium will be limiting the number of guests per day and requiring social distancing and face coverings.

“The visitor experience will be different but unique,” said Carrie Lewis, president and CEO of the Oregon Coast Aquarium. “Due to state guidelines and while our county is in phase one, we will have visitors explore our outside exhibits only.”

Guests can be part of a one-hour facilitated outdoor encounter featuring five outdoor exhibits. The exhibits include the vultures, otters, seals and sea lions, the seabird aviary and a rocky habitat.

Tickets are $15 a person and must be purchased online.
