Birch Aquarium at Scripps is the public exploration center for the world-renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the aquarium features more than 60 habitats of fish and invertebrates from the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest to the tropical waters of Mexico and the western Pacific. An interactive museum showcases research discoveries by Scripps scientists on climate, earth and ocean science, and features hands-on activities designed to help visitors use critical thinking, and to make science relevant to their daily lives.

Highlights include the two-story Giant Kelp Tank, the outdoor Tide Pool Plaza,  Expedition at Sea: Sally Ride Gallery, which gives visitors a taste of what it’s like to live and work aboard a research vessel, and the newest exhibit Oddities: Hidden Heroes of the Scripps Collections that showcases the astonishing adaptations (aka superpowers) of ocean creatures.

The aquarium boasts some of the most stunning views in all of San Diego and is a fantastic place to host birthday parties and other special events. Beyond the walls of the aquarium, Birch Aquarium also hosts whale watching and tide-pooling excursions and is the largest provider of K-12 ocean science education in the county.
