Cabrillo Marine Aquarium
in San Pedro

The marine life at Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is all from southern California. Since 1935, the aquarium has been exhibiting So Cal's rich diversity and adaptations of its local sea life through a combination of aquaria, museum collections and interpretive displays.

Visitors of all ages can pursue informal marine biology education, scientific research training and ecological awareness. These topics are made fun by the informative and creative exhibits in the Virginia Reid Moore Marine Research Library, the Aquatic Nursery, the Exploration Center and the Susanne Lawrenz-Miller Exhibit Hall.

Cabrillo Coastal Park is just steps away from the doors of the Aquarium. Here you can check out tidepools, beaches, walking trails and a saltmarsh. Low tides are the best time to explore the tidepools for Cabrillo Beach.

There are picnic tables, a restroom, a fishing pier and a boat launch ramp. You literally could spend all day here.
