About this event

Visit the world’s largest marine mammal hospital to see animal care experts providing life-saving care to patients so they can be released back to the wild.

Watch as our volunteers prepare meals in the Fish Kitchen, peek into our laboratory to learn more about our scientific research, and explore interactive exhibits that give you a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to rescue hundreds of marine mammals every year. Plus, you’ll discover how you can take action to protect marine mammals and the ocean.

Open Friday to Monday 10am to 4pm

Tickets are free but must be reserved online in advance. You may enter anytime within your entrance window and stay as long as you like until we close at 4pm.
