Help Now, Fun Later

For generations, Birch Aquarium has brought the magic and wonder of the ocean to San Diego families like yours. Now the aquarium needs your help more than ever. A membership gift certificate is a wonderful way to support the aquarium while giving your loved ones something to look forward to.

It costs more than $25,500 per day to keep Birch Aquarium running. By purchasing a membership Gift Certificate now, you are making a donation that ensures the continued care of Birch Aquarium's animals, as well as supporting the online learning programs.

Gift memberships begin on the first visit to the aquarium once we reopen, but your purchase will have an immediate impact. Memberships start at just $55 and pay for themselves in two visits.

*Offer and certificates Do not apply to membership renewals. Gift certificates can be applied to new memberships only. Membership cards, guest passes, and all membership benefits will begin when the certificate is redeemed in the Visitor Services office. Available online only and may not be combined with other discounts. Offer ends June, 30, 2020. For any questions please contact our Membership Office at aqmmembership@ucsd.edu.
