What you'll do

Do you love the ocean and its adorable creatures? In this unique experience, you will get a closer look at the rehabilitation process of our recovering seal and sea lion patients!

You will have a behind the scenes opportunity to view California sea lions, Pacific harbor seals, Northern elephant seals, and Northern fur seals (not all animals may be present, dependent on season). *This behind the scenes access is not offered to the general public!

During your private viewing, you'll get to witness an animal feeding and learn more about their eating habits. Please keep in mind our animals are on specific feeding schedules, so please show up on time.

You will leave with a newfound love for these mammals and some gifts to take home with you!

Other things to note:
Bring your camera, as you get a more in-depth look at how our animals are cared for. Please keep in mind that our center is all outdoors, so dress appropriately to accommodate weather conditions.

Our visit at the center was a great experience. We were able to really get a picture of what the rehab process was like for the animals from their time of arrival to the center to their releases back to the wild. Stephanie was our guide and she was very friendly, knowledgeable and clearly interested in having us learn more about the animals and what the center does to help them. The rest of the staff and volunteers were great, too! Everyone were very accommodating and made sure we were learning throughout our visit. I highly recommend this for all ages!

Our family of four, which includes 2 teenage boys was thoroughly engrossed in the tour. Stephanie was very knowledgeable about the rehab process and provided personal stories about her experience. The behind the scenes tour included watching the mammals during feeding time. This up close and personal tour really made an impression on the whole family.

Krysta provided the best experience! She took the time to explain how the rescue center came to be, & took us through step by step in a rescue. We learned about how patients were was assessed, rescued, cared for & the different areas in which the patients were kept (in regards to what they needed). My first grade daughter attended with me, & she was beyond happy. She listened & remembered what Krysta told her as she relayed it to our family & friends! She was so excited to share what she learned. I think her favorite was learning about the elephant seals. Krysta throughly understood the dynamic of our group. I admit my daughter is very attentive & enjoys these types of educational activities, but Krysta made sure to explain things with ease & answered all of our questions! Thank you so much for this incredible summer/educational experience!

I had my tour with Stephanie! I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and seeing the seals and sea lions. Stephanie is very energetic, nice, and has a broad knowledge of the animals. I really enjoyed seeing the facility as well as all of the animals. It is definitely worth a visit! I hope to visit again someday!

What a great, eye-opening experience. The team was amazing to watch as they cared for the seals in different stages of recovery. The seals seem to look right into your soul with those dark eyes and adorable faces.
