Get Into Your Sanctuary Day will feature a Fish Fest at the Coastal Discovery Center from 11am to 3pm.

Visitors can enjoy free family fishing and plankton tows. There will also be free California Salmonscape posters available. And don’t miss out on the scavenger hunt around W.R. Hearst Memorial State Park.
Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary is one of the most biodiverse areas in our world’s ocean. Birds, whales, sea otters, and harbor seals call the sanctuary home. Some of the best ways to experience the sanctuary are through the many on-the-water recreational activities like kayaking, surfing, scuba diving, sailing, and fishing. Always practice responsible wildlife viewing and be sure to take the wildlife pledge!
