What Not to Bring

For your safety and that of other visitors, we ask that you do not bring backpacks or large photography equipment. If you will be bringing an infant, it is recommended that the child be in a front carrier to ensure the baby’s head will not be hit on any low overheads. Additionally, please note that if you bring a stroller or carriage, you must leave it at the entrance gate while aboard the ship.

Bus Drop-off and Parking

Buses may drop off passengers near the entrance gate to the ship, located at 100 Clinton Street. The bus will then proceed to Lot #9 adjacent to the Adventure Aquarium. Cost is $10.00 per bus and is payable to the lot attendant. Please note that parking in front of the Susquehanna Bank Center, the Children’s Garden, or in the Marina Parking Lot is not permitted.
