Get Immersed In Marine Biology

Come face to face with an orca at the Noyo Center For Marine Science Discovery Center in downtown Fort Bragg. Don’t worry, it’s actually an orca skeleton (the world’s largest) that washed up on the Mendocino Coast. Equally impressive to both kids and adults, there are many interactive exhibits including the Ocean Immersion Dome that puts you underwater in 360-degree video. Cabrillo Lighthouse has a 240 gallon salt water tank and marine animal exhibits and a museum dedicated to the lighthouse itself. Weather permitting, get outside and venture into a natural marine habitat at MacKerricher State Park tide pools. Follow the boardwalk out to Laguna Point.
