Covid-19: St Andrews Aquarium Closed to the Public
As part of the Government’s containment plan for the COVID-19 coronavirus, St Andrews Aquarium has been temporarily closed to the public until further notice. The move is consistent with the closure of other leisure venues to prevent further outbreak. The closure is effective as of 20th March 2020.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely, please refer to our websites and social channels for further updates on a date when we will reopen.
All our feeding experiences will be postponed until the Autumn with effect from Thursday 19th March. If you have a feeding experience booked, a member of our team will be in touch to re-schedule your experience as soon as possible – please be patient with us, we are a small and now much reduced team.
We want to reassure all our Annual Pass holders that we will be extending pass expiry dates by the amount of time that you were unable to use them, however long that will be.
Our keepers will still be working, behind closed doors and at a very safe distance from each other, to ensure our animals are cared for throughout this closure. As a family owned business, our animals are part of our family and we will ensure they stay safe.
Like many businesses, we are facing the prospect of no income but, unlike other businesses, we cannot switch the lights off, close the doors and go home. We have to cover the ongoing costs of heat, light and food to keep the animals safe that we must pay for.
We don’t do gift certificates but we do offer Adoption Packs and Annual Passes that you can use for a whole year. During these challenging times we are pledging that every annual pass bought between 18th March and the end of the closure will be extended to cover a 15 month period to ensure you get the most value for money out of it.
Every little will help and all of it will go to the costs of caring for our family of penguins, meerkats, seals, monkeys and the many other species that live in the Aquarium.
Thank you to all our customers at this challenging time.
