Heal the Bay Aquarium is the public face of Heal the Bay, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit; it is home to more than 100 species of marine animals and plants, living examples of the importance of our work to make Southern California’s coastal waters and watersheds, including Santa Monica Bay, safe, healthy and clean.

A visit to the Aquarium is uniquely interactive – the 4,500-square-foot marine center is loaded with hands-on exhibits; staff, trained volunteers, and interns are stationed throughout ready to help identify animals on display, answer questions, and engage in conversation about the ocean environment.

  • It's a quaint place. Staff are friendly. They have sharks and starfish tank area that you can touch. Make sure to ask when is the next feeding time for the star fish.
