Join us for an informative one-hour Docent-Led Tour of The
Marine Mammal Center, an operating veterinary hospital for marine mammals such
as seals and sea lions. Docents lead participants through the Center's exhibits
and viewing areas, sharing stories about our seal and sea lion patients and
giving insight into how the Center works. In March and April guests will likely
see the onsite patients, but visibility does vary daily depending on the
patient’s medical condition.
Docent-Led Tours are ideal for individuals and families that
want to learn more about the work of the Center. If your group is more than 10
people, please call us to book a private tour. PLUS! Receive a 10% discount in
the Gift Shop on the day of your tour. Simply mention that you were on the
