The Marine Mammal Center
3:00pm – 6:00pm

Experience our busy season in a way you never have before -- through the eyes of our scientists.

Spring is on the horizon, and with it pup season here at The Marine Mammal Center. Starting in March, our rescue trucks will bring in dozens of new patients every day. These pups range from newborn harbor seals to month-old elephant seals to California sea lions.

Our educators and scientists will share with you the amazing stories of how we rescue and rehabilitate these vulnerable animals.

Tickets start at $100 per person, and include...

  • Updates on pup patients receiving life-saving care
  • Exclusive moments with scientific experts
  • Educational opportunities for all ages
  • Drinks and delicious nibbles by McCall’s
  • Complimentary onsite parking

Behind-the-scenes tours and other benefits are available to individual and corporate sponsors.

This is your best chance this year to interact with the Center’s scientists and educators as our popular Sea Lion Soirée returns in 2018. Join us and learn how you’re helping send healthy pups back to their ocean home.
