Modeled after Blue Cavern Point, a kelp forest along the northeastern coast of Santa Catalina Island.
This exhibit represents the underwater habitat you would find along our coast and around local islands.
Kelp forests provide shelter, food, and breeding grounds for many species, including other algae, marine mammals, fish, birds, invertebrates, and plankton. Some animals to look out for are leopard sharks, California moray eels, California sheephead, giant sea bass, and our divers!

I totally use this to lower my blood pressure at times, just makes me dream even more of when I will reside at the beach! Can’t be soon enough!
