What a San Diego gem!! This place has both land and aquatic animals, kids can pet Manta Rays, view a bald eagle, hold shark eggs, and grow an appreciation for nature. Membership is inexpensive and allows us to return often!

We had a fabulous time. We learned a lot about our own city that we didn't know existed. We will go again.

It is a great way to spend a peaceful hour or two. See unusual fish, turtles, birds and more. There is even a small outdoor area for a picnic lunch. And it never seems to be crowded which for me is a huge plus!

It's a great place to take your kids to learn about the natural habitats of these creatures. We totally enjoyed it. Nice & slow, easy afternoon.

From Our Editors

Greet a sea turtle as he swims up to say hello. Get eye-to-eye with a bald eagle. Touch a bat ray in an interactive touch pool. Visiting The Living Coast Discovery Center is a chance to experience Southern California's plants and animals on the 316-acre Sweetwater Marsh National Wildlife Refuge on San Diego Bay.

A walk-through aviary encompasses the tidal slough habitat of black-crowned night herons and red-breasted mergansers. Bald and golden eagles await up-close encounters at the Eagle Mesa, but the rays get even closer: an interactive touch pool puts the aquatic creatures beneath your fingertips. Raptor Row hosts the Center's non-releasable rescued birds of prey, all of which have injuries or other conditions that prevent them from surviving outside the refuge on their own. Visitors are also free to follow their own path along the center's 1.5 miles of walking trails.
