Yes. You have two weeks from the date of your receipt to apply general admission tickets to a membership. Your admission tickets must be purchased from The Florida Aquarium; tickets purchased from a third-party reseller cannot be applied toward a membership. Only one admission receipt is valid toward a membership, and it can be used only for the individuals who purchased the admission tickets. Only the admission that would be covered on the membership will go toward the cost of the membership. Example: if you have two admission tickets on one receipt, but buy an Individual level membership, only one of the admission tickets can be applied toward a membership.

You can apply your tickets to a membership in person, or by calling the membership team at (813) 273-4030 with the order number from your receipt.

To prevent misuse of membership cards, we require that all named adult cardholders present photo ID upon entering the Aquarium. We also want to protect our members should membership cards be lost or stolen.

  • The nanny/caregiver is only permitted to bring in members’ children, no other adult guests.
  • The nanny/caregiver will not be listed on the membership card and MUST show his/her photo ID at Guest Services for entry.
  • The nanny/caregiver may come in place of a primary member. If the nanny/caregiver accompanies the primary member(s), a guest spot must be available on the membership for the nanny/caregiver to gain free entry to the Aquarium.
  • If a nanny/caregiver is not listed in our system, we will not be able to admit him/her into the Aquarium. To add or change a nanny/caregiver on your membership, contact the membership team.
