Scripps Aquarium La Jolla California - Birch Aquarium San Diego California

The Birch Aquarium at Scripps presents all aspects of oceanography in a creative and approachable manner. Situated on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla California, this beautiful complex contains more than 60 tanks, a demonstration tide pool, and an interactive museum. The aquarium introduces sea life from the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest to the creatures that inhabit the tropical waters of Mexico. The tide-pool plaza, located outdoors, offers visitors the opportunity a close-up view of sea urchins, sea cucumbers, sea stars, and more. Visitors can touch these animals at the aquarium's new tide-pool touch tanks. The south wing contains the Scripps Hall of Oceanography, featuring "Exploring the Blue Planet," the largest hands-on oceanographic exhibition in the country.
