Touch a Sea Star in the Discovery Tidepool
During your next trip to the aquarium, don’t let the fish have all the fun—visit the Discovery Tidepool, where visitors can handle a few of the animals that live along the California coastline, including turban snails, hermit crabs, and sea stars. The tidepool is staffed by naturalists and trained nature lovers who can answer questions about the animals and their habitat.
