Frequently Asked Questions
Where does the money raised during Aqua Girl® go?
As the largest charity women’s week in the country, your participation in Aqua Girl® contributes to a very good cause. In fact, 100% of the proceeds from Aqua Girl® benefit Aqua Foundation for Women, a not-for-profit foundation whose primary mission is to serve as a funding catalyst for lesbian, bisexual, and transgender wellness and equality in South Florida through grants, scholarships, and initiatives.
How old do I have to be to attend Aqua Girl®?
All of our events are 21 and over with proper ID. It is important that you carry your ID with you at all times while at any Aqua Girl event as we have zero tolerance for underage drinking and event security as well as city police may conduct random checks at any time.
Should I feel safe while at Aqua Girl?
Yes. Aqua Girl has always and will always serve a safe place for thousands of women from around the globe to come together and be themselves. Our security teams, consisting of venue security, private security and city of Miami Beach police check baggage and are on site to ensure everyone is safe.
Some events have a dress code. What does this mean?
We will be visiting some of the hottest nightclubs and venues in Miami and South Beach. We ask that Aqua Girl® guests dress to impress at our evening nightclub events. That means no flip flops, athletic sneakers (new designer sneakers are okay), shorts, baggy jeans, ripped t-shirts, athletic jerseys, sweat pants, or baseball caps.
What if I am disabled, can I still attend the events?
All events are ADA compliant, if you have any special needs please contact our office and we will do everything possible to accommodate you.
Can men attend?
Our paramount concern is to provide a safe and positive environment for LBT women to socialize and network. We do encourage gay gentlemen to attend our events. We also do allow men to attend if escorted by a woman. We will expect all and enforce all to treat each with respect.
Where do I park?
There are plenty of municipal parking garages throughout South Beach in which you may pay by the hour. Click HERE for a listing of all public parking garages in the area.
If I stay at the host hotel do I get free tickets to the pool parties?
Each room that is booked through the Aqua code will receive 2 complimentary tickets for entrance to the Friday, Saturday and Sunday pool party. This is a benefit to staying in the hotel. The tickets do not include any drinks.
What happens if the Saturday pool party sells out?
Entrance to the pool party is guaranteed with an advance ticket purchase (including passes) as long as you are in line by 1pm. After 1:00 advance purchased ticket holders will have priority entrance as fire marshall allows.
There will be no refunds.
Will pool towels be provided at the any of the pool parties?
No, unfortunately the hotel does not provide towel service to hotel guests or event attendees. It is recommended that you either bring one of your own or purchase one at the event for use.
