Discover vibrant coral reefs at Birch Aquarium at Scripps.
View a stunning variety of colorful, Pacific marine life featured in more than 60 habitats. Interact with hands-on exhibits that showcase cutting-edge research discoveries that have profound impacts on what we know about Earth's systems and how these discoveries are relevant to our everyday lives.
You may see some changes in our exhibits over the next few months. Portions of Feeling the Heat and There's Something About Seahorses have been removed as we prepare to open a brand new gallery. The Expedition at Sea: R/V Sally Ride Gallery will open October 28, 2016. This gallery is the predecessor to an exciting new exhibit, Expedition, which will be opening in 2017. Please check with the aquarium representatives at the info booth for more information and exhibit updates upon your arrival.
