At the end of the Manhattan Beach Pier, our "Jewel" of an aquarium immerses those who visit in an educational and interactive experience, inspiring all to respect the ocean and the environment. We are open 364 days of the year free of charge. We also teach classes, provide volunteer opportunities and hold events. Having a website allows supporters, visitors, potential volunteers, etc to easily flow through our pages and find what they need in order to support our mission.
The specific and primary purposes are to foster and promote the public study of, and interest in, the oceans, tidelands and beaches of Southern California, the marine life therein, and the impact of human populations on that environment.
