A Unique Zoo and Aquarium Located only 6 Miles South of downtown San Diego

Get up-close and personal with amazing coastal wildlife at the Living Coast Discovery Center! Located within a national wildlife refuge on San Diego Bay, this nonprofit zoo and aquarium offers an intimate, hands-on nature experience for animal-lovers of all ages. Meet endangered sea turtles, octopi, sharks, rays, eagles, owls, hawks, snakes, lizards, and more! Then explore the refuge walking trails to enjoy scenic views of downtown San Diego and the bay.  Turtle Lagoon has been expanded to provide more space for the turtles and interactive features for guests.
