The Monterey Bay Aquarium was opened to the public after being closed for a year by a pandemic.
The aquarium was open to members on May 1st, but on Saturday the public was able to tour the facility.
State guidelines allow at least 2,250 guests per day at 25% capacity. However, aquarium officials said they restricted daily attendance well below that mark so that staff could maintain adequate social distance.
The aquarium will open for up to 250 people. This phased reopening phase allows aquariums to monitor and evaluate safety protocols and increase the numbers permitted by state guidelines.
The aquarium opens at 10 am and has 125 to 175 admission blocks every 30 minutes until final admission at 3:30 pm. However, the tickets for May are sold out.
