Day Ticket Frequently Asked Questions

Day tickets are valid for one entry into the attraction.

Some tickets require you to select a timeslot as well as a date. The timeslots are for entry only - once inside the attraction you can stay as long as you like. We have timeslots to help control how many people are in the attraction at any given time so that we don't get over-crowded and everyone has an enjoyable experience.

Whilst we require guests to enter within their chose timeslot, we do understand that sometimes delays happen. If you arrive after your entry timeslot has passed, please approach the ticket desk and speak to a member of our guest services team.

No, entry before your timeslot is not permitted. If you don't want to commit to a specific timeslot for your visit, we recommend you purchase the Fully Flexible ticket which allows you to enter at any time on any date. The Fully Flexible ticket is great because it gives you entry via the fast track online ticket entrance, but doesn't cost any more than the standard gate price.

No, if you are purchasing a day ticket or multi-attractions pass online, we recommend that you select the 'print@ home' or 'mobile ticket' option which allows you to head straight to the attraction's entrance. No need to queue to collect tickets from our admissions desk! 

Some of our experiences require us to enforce slightly different age restrictions for some of our younger guests. This is mostly due to the operating health and safety obligations we are required by law to comply with. We strive to minimise these variations as much as possible.

By nature the Student/Senior concessions tickets are already discounted and so in some instances we don't offer further discounts online. However, in order to make our attraction as appealing to as many people as possible we do offer additional online concessions discounts for some of our most popular tickets.

Unless otherwise stated all savings shown on this website are the lowest online prices compared to the standard individual entry gate prices. For example, the cheapest adult Online Saver ticket is priced at $29.50. This is a saving of $12.50, or 30%, compared to the standard individual adult gate price of $42. We ensure that there are always some 30% discounted tickets available, but this does not necessarily mean that they are available every day. As with other experiences and activities booked online, such as flights and hotels, the deepest discounts are most often available in off peak periods. Our pricing messages most often reference the lowest 'from' prices or 'up to' savings available.

The number of trips per day varies, but trips can run as often as every 30 minutes between 10:00am – 4:30pm. A full list of available timeslots and exact numbers of spaces remaining on each boat trip for your chosen visit date will be shown when purchasing your tickets in the online ticket store. Simply select a timeslot from the list shown and complete your purchase.

Note: The 11am trip includes shark feed!
