Venice Oceanrium is back on the Venice Pier!

Here is a message from Venice Oceanarium!

Come see us this Sunday, September 26, 11-3!  We couldn’t be more thrilled! The Historic Venice Fishing Pier has re-opened after nearly 2 years of renovation. And she looks beautiful! It’s been way too long and we cannot wait to see you all in person again.

COVID-19 protocols will be observed.

We’ve been busy all these months getting ready.
Our oceanographic display includes rare specimens, shark jaws, and historical artifacts. Be a Citizen Scientist and help us gather gather ocean data from our water testing kits. Observe grains of sand and seawater samples under our microscopes. Read ocean-inspired poetry, draw, and learn about the sea life just beneath the pier. We have new enlightening programs every week.

The pier juts 1000 feet out over the open sea, with saltwater breezes and spectacular coastline views! Besides our marine specimens, you’ll see migratory birds perched on the pilings, dolphins, interesting catches reeled in and local surfer species. 😉

It should be a beautiful day at the beach. Please come by and say ‘Hi’!
