Come dive with us! In our Underwater Explorers program, kids ages eight to 13 are introduced to surface scuba diving in our Great Tide Pool, where they’ll meet amazing animals while getting a fish’s-eye view of the wonders of the bay. This time lapse video gives you a bird’s-eye view of the action!

"We’re all equal in the Great Tide Pool." In our Days of Discovery program, kids with disabilities learn scuba and explore the underwater world right off our decks! We offer this free program with Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network.

Underwater Explorers starts today, where kids eight to 13 are introduced to the underwater world through surface scuba diving. They’ll meet amazing animals while getting a fish’s-eye view of the bay. No experience is necessary, only a sense of adventure!
Did you get a chance to see our Day of Discovery program, where young people with disabilities don scuba gear and encounter sea creatures in the Great Tide Pool? Here are some great photos from the weekend! Don’t forget, we also offer our popular Underwater Explorers program for kids 8-13!

You never know what cool animals will be show up in our Underwater Explorers dive program! For the benefit of the kids, our husbandry staff recently released a small (and harmless) leopard shark into the Great Tide Pool! It will swim out with the next high tide, and into the bay!
Leopard sharks are considered shy and skittish, virtually harmless to humans. They feed primarily on bottom-dwelling invertebrates like crabs, shrimp, clams and octopus, as well as some bony fishes including anchovies, smelts and even some other bottom-dwelling sharks and rays.
