Located in beautiful La Jolla, one San Diego's most scenic places to see, the Birch Aquarium at Scripps is a located on the hills above the Pacific Ocean overlooking the Scripps oceanic facilities and its private pier.

The Birch Aquarium includes beautiful grounds where you can sit next to an outdoor fountain and enjoy lunch, or pay admission to enter the world of colorful, Pacific marine life. The aquarium includes  hands-on exhibits and over 60 habitats to see. Changing exhibitions include exploration of Coral, Shark Reefs and Fish, Living Tide Pools, Whales and Seahorses, to name a few.

Nature is truly amazing in its adaptations!
