  • We had a lot of fun learning about the different mammals brought into pmmc. You can see the animals in the different pools and they are funny to watch! 
  • Docents greet you and explain why the animals are there and how they are rehabbed. The sea lions are very playful. Several cute exhibits that describe sea life and hazards to wildlife. The volunteers ...  more »

  • The work these guys do is great. I first heard about them when I saw them release animals back into the wild at the beach.
  • Really admire the job many volunteers are doing in this center, to preserve the See Mammals, rescuing and rehabilitating them to realize them back into the ocean life. Please help by giving donations or buying a souvenir in the little shop. Parking and admission is FREE.
  • We came on a Saturday to see what this was all about. We got there and they were set up with tables and volunteers like it was an open house. No one greeted us or offered a tour. All we did was look at 6 sealions in very small pools from the side through a fence, and then looked the shack gift shop. Willing to take our money but did not give us the time of day. We are a young bi-racial married couple and I can't help but wonder if this had something to do with it. Be prepared to play frogger from the parking to the facility. Very disappointed but also glad they help the sea life in OC.
  • I'm so in love with this place ! :D It's so heartwarming to see our beloved mammals being cared for. Hunny was my favorite to watch, he is so silly and such a bully ! The docents are very approachable and well informed about everything you want to know. I can't wait to be able to volunteer here some day. I very much look forward to it
  • Great facility. Definitely worth doing the tours. You don't get to touch the sea life but that's alright. You do get really close to them and get to watch the staff working with them. Definitely worth a visit. Schools get to come for a free tour. Get your children's school to check it out.
