Whale Bus Outreach


We bring an ocean of fun to you! Invite the Whale Bus to your location today!

The Whale Bus is a van that travels to your site transforming your classroom into a marine mammal museum with real specimens such as bones, pelts, and baleen. We bring an ocean field trip to your classroom! All presentations include hands-on activities and exploration of specimens. Programs teach students about the lives of marine mammals as well as the bigger picture of caring for the marine environment. The Marine Mammal Center is a wildlife hospital; therefore, we do not bring live animals. Download our Whale Bus Outreach Flyer here!
