New price structure includes all-day access to dolphins

The National Aquarium in Baltimore's Inner Harbor is redesigning its dolphin show — and its admission prices.

Beginning May 4, the "timed, limited-access and separately priced [dolphin] shows" will be eliminated and replaced by all-day access to the dolphins and their trainers, according to a statement released Thursday by the aquarium.

Along with the new dolphin show format, the aquarium is increasing its base admission price to $29.95 for adults and $20.95 for children. Adults now pay $27.95 for admission and a ticket to see the dolphins; that package costs $22.95 for children.

Visitors will no longer be able to buy an admission ticket that does not include dolphin access, which costs $24.95 for adults and $19.95 for children.

The aquarium is also increasing opportunities to interact with animals and revamping its website, aqua.org, the statement said.
