Experience the Santa Monica Bay
Heal the Bay’s public marine education center under the Santa Monica Pier.
At the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, you will be treated to a unique view of the undersea world just steps from our Aquarium’s doors. The family-friendly facility is home to more than 100 species of marine animals and plants – all found in the Santa Monica Bay. As our guest, you will gain a new appreciation for the sea life of the Bay and leave inspired to become a steward of this crucial marine environment.
