Plan a Field Trip at the San Antonio Aquarium

We have three private events rooms which can be arranged for many different types of events. Whether you have an event where people would be free to roam about or your event requires specified seating, select the room that is perfect for your group.  Absent a choice from you, we have the right to reserve the appropriate room for your event.  If you have a request, call us, otherwise no room is guaranteed. We would love to discuss how we can accommodate you. Come in for a tour and envision the possibilities that can be yours for a unique, one-of-a-kind event!
