See the Sea, si’?”
Join the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium floating oceanography and marine biology lab,  from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Aug. 23.
This hands-on trip will be aboard a specially equipped vessel where you’ll have opportunities to study some of the near shore animals. Learn about the fascinating world of plankton, animals that call mud their home and some of the fish that prefer the sandy bottom.
The trip starts with a “fish-eye” view of the underwater world living on and around the dock, which will be revealed by an underwater camera. Passengers will be able to watch this real-time ocean documentary featuring sea anemones, sea stars, tunicates, and fish via monitors on the boat.
Once the boat leaves the dock, a specialized net called an otter trawl will be set. Fishes collected with this net will be placed in tanks on the boat giving passengers up close and personal looks at several types of flatfish, perch and croaker. A trap will also be set on the ocean floor to catch sand bass, scorpion fish, crabs and other bottom-dwelling critters. Critters caught in the trap will be displayed onboard allowing close-up examination and to learn about the animals from Cabrillo staff members.
During the trip, staff will also point out birds in the area, explain what identifying characteristics to look for and share fun bird facts.
Pre-registration is required. Fee: $28 ($25 FRIENDS members).

Summer Whale Watch”
Join Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Aug. 24, to search for the great whales that visit our coast during the summer.

The waters between Los Angeles and Catalina have become a regular stop for some of these feeding blue whales as they migrate to breeding grounds off Costa Rica during the winter.
Guests will board the 90-foot yacht, ­­Spirit, in San Pedro and head out to sea in search of blue whales and other marine life, such as humpbacks and fin whales, as well as many species of dolphins and seabirds.
Cost is just $30 ($25 for FRIENDS member). Reservations are required.
