    All persons attending the party are included in the party count. When booking a party, the party room is available only for the time booked, therefore parties should start on time to receive the full experience.

    Due to safety and capacity limitations there is a 25 person maximum, including adults and children.


    FREE Parking for entire party! Party attendees will check in at Will Call at the main Aquarium entrance by a party coordinator, who will facilitate entrance into the Aquarium. The coordinator will be outside the entrance 15 minutes before the party is due to start. To decorate the room beforehand, you may arrive an hour prior to booked party time. Additional time will not be provided in the party room if party is tardy. All parties must end on time to facilitate next party.


    Non-refundable, full payment is due at time of booking. Additional guests will be charged the day of party. CMA Members can receive 10% OFF.


    Date changes must be made at least three weeks before the scheduled party. All changes made less than three weeks of the party date will incur a $100 fee in addition to the total party charge, payable on the date the change is made. If a requested date change is unavailable due to party bookings by other Clearwater Marine Aquarium patrons, unfortunately, the request must be considered a cancellation. We will be happy to place you on a waiting list.

    All Cancellations can be re-booked but cannot receive a refund.


    The rooms are booked for set times to allow time to clean for the next party, therefore you can only book the room for the set time. If you would like a longer or larger party, you can book two time slots or two rooms as space is available. If you go over your time limit you will be charged $75 per ½ hour.
