Just a stone’s throw away from the ocean, learn about the Southern California marine environment from the interactive exhibits at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium. Occupying a multibuilding complex designed by Frank Gehry, the aquarium hosts thirty-eight saltwater displays, including sharks, eels, and octopus. You can observe local marine animals as they appear in nature, and even touch live animals in the tide pool called the “touch tank.” Once you have had a chance to explore the aquarium, take a moment to visit Cabrillo Beach. A wonderful beach located inside the breakwater that protects the harbor, it offers great swimming and low waves.
