Dear Seymour Center Community,
Following the guidelines of our public health officials, the Seymour Marine Discovery Center is temporarily closed to the public until further notice.
While there have been no known cases of COVID-19 at the Seymour Center, providing a safe working environment for the public, plus our staff and volunteers is our top priority. The health and care of our animals is ongoing during this public closure. Please be assured they will be well cared for.
Thank you for your understanding; we are truly saddened by this closure.
Come touch a friendly shark, see how marine scientists work, and take in the spectacular Monterey Bay. Our exhibit hall offers a deeper dive into the adventure of ocean research here in Santa Cruz and around the world.
Visit us and explore the fascinating world of marine science and conservation. We look forward
to meeting you!
The Seymour Marine Discovery Center is a community-supported marine science education center of the University of California, Santa Cruz.
