This new exhibit features six main pools and three small feature tanks for guests to enjoy an up-close and hands-on learning experience. Then head to the Nose2Nose underwater viewing exhibits for more interactive educational fun. Marvel at the grace, speed, and playful personalities of seals and Steller sea lions and a fascinating and diverse array of fish and deep-diving sea birds.
