Discover the wonders of ocean life at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Sea Center. Located on historic Stearns Wharf, this regional aquarium offers you close encounters with marine animals from the Santa Barbara Channel.
We have made several changes to our cleaning and guest services protocols to keep everyone as safe as possible. Masks are required for anyone 3 years or older and must cover your nose and mouth at all times while inside the Sea Center or waiting in line to enter. We have implemented a one-way flow of movement, with a limited number of groups allowed inside at a time. Please keep a six foot distance between you and anyone not in your household.

Tickets are $7/person and can be purchased at the Sea Center. You may need to wait in line to enter the Sea Center.
