Shipping Information



Tide Pool Aquatics ships across the continental US. We offer a flat rate shipping cost of $40 for CA residents and $50 for out of state customers. To ensure optimal quality and care, each order is personally prepared, packed, and mailed by the owner, Blake Lewis. 

We ship Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, of each week. Orders being delivered to an inadequate temperature range or exceeding $500 may require a signature at the time of delivery, or be held to your local FedEx ship center for pickup.  

You will be contacted after your order is placed to schedule shipment, or you can leave your preferred shipment date in the order comments. We will not ship until we have confirmation from the customer and there is adequate weather for shipment.


Local Delivery:

For local customers in Los Angeles CA, we have pickup and free delivery options. Please contact us to see if you're eligible for free delivery or to schedule a pickup. Local delivery and pickup are available on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of each week.


Shipping Materials:

We are proud to be using Eco-Enclose boxes and packing materials for all of our shipments! These boxes are made with 100% recycled cardboard. No new material! Unfortunately, there is no current alternative to the plastic shipping bags we use to pack fish. We kindly ask that you recycle those materials.
