Discover flora and fauna of the rainforest in a new mural around the treehouse, explore our pirate's bookshelf and relax on a new porpoise seating area.
Children 6 years old and under will have a magical undersea learning experience in our popular WonderWing. The WonderWing is an educational space offering a permanent exhibition on the sea and the creatures that make it their home. Children can explore a pirate ship, perform in a Tiki theater, climb a tree house and slide through a whale. Explore a lighthouse and look through a periscope to find colorful sea creatures. Play hide-and-seek in a kelp forest, go fishing, and listen to a waterfall. The WonderWing is designed for early childhood education with elements that stimulate curiosity, enhance understanding, and draw young visitors to experiment, imagine, explore and discover.
