    Our Exhibits Inspire the Next Wave of Ocean Leaders

    Our million-gallon Open Sea exhibit sparks curiosity, wonder and a sense of connection to ocean wildlife when schoolchildren encounter it on field trips. Help us expand our education programs to provide science and environmental education to more students than ever before!

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

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

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

Double the Sun!

The Open Sea exhibit now has two ocean sunfish on display! Watch these stumpy swimmers navigate the Open Sea with their clavus — or truncated tail fin — as a rudder.

A Voice of Courage

The impacts of climate change are growing. Major scientific reports confirm extreme weather events, like the devastating wildfires in California, are getting worse as a result of man-made carbon pollution. Executive Director Julie Packard addresses these events and what we can do, together, to protect our beautiful blue planet.
