We loved it. Very family oriented, and hands-on displays. Not as fancy as other mega-aquarium places, but definitely worth the trip!

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is the best teaching aquarium for families. The staff are experts and the volunteers are close behind. Whether you are young or old they welcome everyone as if they live next door. Some friends drove out from San Bernardino to attend a Grunion Run evening. The 10 yr old started asking to go back before they even reached the car to go home.

From Our Editors

A giant forest stretches across most of California—but its impossible to hike there. Submerged just off of the state's rocky coast, large kelp forests make a home to diverse animal and plant life. Moray eels, leopard sharks, and giant sea bass all swim beneath the water, while sea otters splash at the surface. That's just one of the habitats on display inside the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium.

The 21,000-square-foot aquarium showcases Southern California's rich marine life, making it the largest aquarium of its kind in the world. The Susanne Lawrenz-Miller Exhibit Hall charts a journey through different regions, from the open ocean, to the mudflats, to the sandy shores. Other areas present a more immersive experience. The tide pool lets visitors touch a starfish, while the exploration center lets them crawl into a tunnel, where they find themselves surrounded by octopuses, sting rays, and other creatures that have signed contracts to make public appearances.

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium wants to keep all of these creatures around for the long term. Case and point: the aquarium houses a research library and an aquatic nursery, where the team raises young sea animals and trains young scientists.
