Highly recommend going online and reserving a behind the scene tour. Great staff, great info, and fun way to explore the aquarium. The turtle encounter lets you through some veggies at the little guys. It would have been nice if the area had been blocked...More

We had a fantastic tour and really lucked out, with whales coming right up to our boat. The crew was knowledgeable and enthusiastic! Shoutout to Gianna, who went above and beyond for us on the tour today :)

The Pacific Whale Foundation is doing an important work including marine research, education, and preservation. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and you receive discounts in the store and on snorkeling trips, whale watching excursions and more. Highly recommend a stop here to learn more.

We went in May and saw them. The whale center has toll free number 1-800-942-5311 and could probably give you a better idea. We were not disappointed.
