Look into a mysterious, mesmerizing world where life looms large.

You'll see giant bluefin tuna power their way through the water, while hammerhead sharks, pelagic rays and giant green sea turtles swim just inches away.

The stunning one-million-gallon exhibit is home to one of the most diverse communities of open-ocean animals to be found in any aquarium.

Parasols of the Sea

Rainy winter days call for a visit with umbrella jellies! You can see a small swarm of these dainty invertebrates on exhibit in our Tiny Drifters gallery in the Open Sea wing.

Say Hello to Our New Puffin Babies

Our five-month-old tufted puffins, Stewart and Stella, have joined our seabird gallery in the Open Sea wing. While this colorful species has earned the nickname "the parrots of the sea," these new birds stand out because of their more muted juvenile coats.

Welcome Our New Little Loggerhead

Our new loggerhead hatchling from North Carolina splashed into its new home in our Open Sea gallery! The tiny turtle will stay with us for a year or two, while aquarists rear it to a larger size and prepare it for release back into the ocean.

Revealing Tuna Secrets

Our Tuna Research and Conservation Center, a partnership with Stanford University, is achieving unprecedented insight into the lives of bluefin tuna.
