Marine Science Sunday programs are held on the second and fourth Sunday of each month at 12pm and 2pm. 

Anyone can participate in the program, but you must reserve a general admission ticket to visit The Marine Mammal Center that day.

When planning your visit, we recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before the Marine Science Sunday presentation. Traffic in the Marin Headlands can get very busy, especially on weekends, so please plan accordingly.
