Why Is The Marine Mammal Center Temporarily Closed to the Public?

The Marine Mammal Center is undergoing improvements and will be temporarily closed to the public starting November 18 and reopening on February 10. During this time, our work rescuing and rehabilitating marine mammals will continue, and the animals in our hospital will continue to receive the highest quality care.

We’re in the process of refreshing our public programs, training our teams and developing new ways for visitors to connect with our patients and our mission to improve ocean health.

We appreciate your patience as we improve. The Marine Mammal Center values our loyal community of visitors who support our efforts to serve as critical first responders for marine mammals.

We will continue to offer a few select programs during this closure, including to accommodate Ocean Ambassador students for their fall field trips and Youth Crew 2020 in early January.

Exciting new programs are ahead and we look forward to reopening to the public with an upgraded on-site experience in February.

Sign up for email and follow us on our social media channels and on our website to stay in touch with our animals and staff with stories, photos and videos.

Regulatory and funding partners: Site visits can be accommodated at certain times during our temporary closure. Please email or call your contact at the Center for more information.

For additional questions, please contact us.
