Dive into the world of sharks, seahorses, and coral reefs at Birch Aquarium. Perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific and featuring more than 60 habitats with amazing ocean creatures, the aquarium hosts daily animal-feedings and hands-on educational visitor activities. Not to be missed are the tide pools where guests can touch local creatures, the two-story Giant Kelp Forest that immerses you in the underwater world, and a rescued Loggerhead Sea Turtle. More than an aquarium, Birch Aquarium is the public outreach center for the world renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and many of the exhibitions feature groundbreaking earth and ocean research. Don’t miss their newest exhibition Seadragons & Seahorses, which celebrates the care and conservation of these charismatic creatures.
