Annual Passes

Be a part of the Monterey Zoo and visit often! An annual pass is the most economical way to enjoy the zoo year-round with unlimited visits and more. Get to know the animals and become a part of our zoo family while contributing to the community you call home.

Currently, annual passes are only sold at our zoo gift-shop. You are welcome to visit and see the zoo, then decided to upgrade your daily admission that day towards the cost of your annual pass. Become a part of the evolution of Monterey County’s first zoological experience of this kind. Our kids and community deserve it!
