Your tax-deductible gift will allow us to teach more people about the wonders of the ocean and the importance of ocean health today and for future generations.

We’ve launched a new chapter for ocean education in 2018! Our iconic Indoor Tide Pool Touch Tank has undergone a complete renovation , we’ve opened the all-new Jumpin’ Jay’s Discovery Dock for early learners, and we installed H2O Today, an exciting 2,000 sq. foot exhibit organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service that explores the essential nature and beauty of water, our planet’s lifeblood. 

These critical innovations are only possible due to your generous support, and we have so much more planned for the future.

Your contribution will help us expand our educational and visitor experiences, and help us realize our vision for a Center that inspires people of all ages to embrace our natural environment with compassion, a sense of community, and active stewardship. Please give today.
