In an effort to safeguard the health of our guests, staff and volunteers, effective November 1st, only group sizes of 20 guests or less may visit to ensure proper physical distancing within our buildings. Due to our capacity limits, groups will be split in half upon arrival to adhere to our maximum party size of 10 guests. Each smaller group of 10 will begin their tour separately between our River Journey and Ocean Journey buildings.

Group visits must be booked a minimum of 72 hours in advance.  Groups that arrive without a preexisting reservation will not be accommodated. Additionally, the Tennessee Aquarium can only accommodate one group per day (one 20-person group). If your group meets the 20 guest limit and you are interested in making a reservation, please contact Brandon McIntosh at blm@tnaqua.org

Please note: Masks are required for all guests ages 5 and up in all buildings at all times as directed by the Hamilton County Health Department.  For more information on this directive and all COVID-19 related updates, please visit www.tnaqua.org/welcomeback

We are currently only booking groups through June of 2021.

Please check this page for updates regarding group capacities and policies for Summer & Fall 2021.
