Heal the Bay Aquarium

Located under the Santa Monica Pier, Heal the Bay Aquarium features 100+ species of marine animals and plants found locally in the Santa Monica Bay.

Hands-on activities contain touch tanks, educational programs, and feeding demonstrations. Other exhibits include Tidal Surge, Sea Jellies, Sharks, Rocky Reef, and more.

Year-round field-trip programs, kids’ classes, party packages, special events, live animal feedings, and summer camps are usually offered.

KG Tip: It may be a little hard to find! The aquarium is located on the beach level of Santa Monica Pier, directly beneath the carousel building, underneath the bridge.
