MMCC is OPEN to the public every day of the year during daylight hours. Come see patients currently in our care from the fence line.


Admission and Parking -- ALWAYS FREE

Visitors are not permitted “behind the scenes” and are kept a safe distance from the animals. This helps to provide a low stress environment during the patients’ rehabilitation, as well as to enable their natural wild behavior.

Educational staff and volunteers are generally available between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm daily. We welcome questions about our facility and the species that are treated at MMCC.


Visitors Center & Gift Shop

Our new visitors center and upgraded gift shop is open 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. daily. Admission is free. Visit our list of gift shop items to check out our top-sellers!


Group Tours

If you are bringing a large group, please call ahead to make arrangements. Group tours are handled through the Center for Marine Studies.

Please note: Pets are not permitted near our animal enclosures. This is for the safety of your pets, as well as the health and stress level of our patients.
