Rescuing and saving wildlife......5 stars all the way! Please note that this center is not a zoo or an aquarium. Don't expect to see lot of animals up close. These are wildlife being rescued and treated. So for the wellbeing of these animals, no one is allowed too close or to make noise around these animals. We wanted to adopt... More

Our family of six (kids ages 12-18) loved visiting and learning about the wonderful work done at this facility. We spent a few hours on the deck, watching volunteers feed and train rescued seals and sea lions, many had to be tube fed and lifted out of the pools. A volunteer gave excellent comments. There is no fee, but we... More

Well, I know these people do great work and my money went to a very worthy cause. But, when we arrived at the centre at about 4pm we were led to believe that we would see a variety of see mammals during the audio tour. What we weren't told was that the closest would be about thirty feet away and... More

This is a wonderful facility and the center does very important work. Learn about marine life, view marine mammals being cared for and give them a donation. They deserve it.

My family visited this center during our visit to the area and were amazed by the work done here by the staff and many volunteers. We took the tour, which was given by Adam, and learned so much! It was a very enjoyable and educational afternoon. There is a nominal fee for the guided tour, but you can look around... More

A nice place to go that doesn't change unless you take a tour. A hospital to take care of injured seals, sea lions, and elephant seals. Very interesting and informative.

Educational! And the surrounding area is beautiful: try to find the old bunkers up on the hills overlooking San Francisco

Take the time to get the full story about our Marine Mammual's. This is a good place for families young and old. The view of the city is perfect from the center.

There is a self guided route around the building with detailed panels to read the full story of the work being done. The gift shop is dangerous! Adopt an animal and take home a small cuddly toy version - fabulous gifts that also use your money to support the work being done.

We donate money to the center and wanted to show our grandson what they were doing with the sea lions and seals. Great cause to donate to!
