Docent-Led Tours (for individuals)


Join us on a Docent-Led Tour for an hour of insights and stories!

Join us for an informative 45 minute Docent-Led Tour of The Marine Mammal Center. Docents lead participants around the Center's exhibits and viewing areas. Tour guides also provide insights into the work of the Center and share stories about our seal and sea lion patients (please note the number of patients onsite and visible varies daily depending on the animal's conditions).

Docent-Led Tours are ideal for individuals and families (fewer than 10 people) that want to learn more about the work of the Center. If your group is more than 10 people, please click here.

Special for the Spring, from March 28 through June 5, 2015, Docent-Led Tours are available:

  • Daily Monday through Friday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m, 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

To celebrate Earth Day, The Marine Mammal Center is proud to offer FREE docent-led tours for visitors to the hospital the week of April 20-April 26!

45 minute long guided tours are available Monday-Friday at 1 and 3 pm, and Saturday and Sunday at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm. Trained educators lead participants around the Center’s exhibits and viewing areas providing insights into the work of the Center, the stories of our seal and sea lion patients and how we can all help keep seals and sea lions healthy. Free tours are generously sponsored by PG&E.
