Mommies and Guppies is a monthly event during the school year designed just for preschoolers and their parents to explore the aquarium. Held during special operating hours, parents and tots enjoy up-close animal encounters with creatures like sea stars and urchins, story time, sing-a-longs, games, and crafts.

We can offer formal and informal programs to your school, festival, party, and more. Our mobile touch tank allows us to bring a variety of tidepool creatures, such as sea stars, hermit crabs, barnacles, anemones, urchins, and other fun friends! We can tailor the program to your needs and curriculum and can provide complementing lessons. These could include marine mammals, sharks, plankton, and others upon request.
We invite you to visit the Aquarium for a brief educational talk about our species of the month and pick up your Beachcombers Guide, then the real fun begins! Head out with your detailed Beachcombers Guide to explore our beautiful tide pools and shorelines in search of the animal of the month. Let us do the hard work and detail for you- where to go, how to get there, and what to look for. You get to do the fun part and enjoy your exploring! Stay tuned for dates this coming school year!
Thank you to all who attended our summer camps this year! Campers had the opportunity to spend a week engaged in fun-filled, hands-on marine science activities. Every week was a different theme so campers explored a broad range of ocean topics.
Stay tuned for Winter Camp dates! More information can be found at our seasonal camps page.
