Living Coast Discovery Center

The Living Coast Discovery Center is a natural treasure on San Diego Bay. Our nonprofit zoo and aquarium is uniquely situated on the Sweetwater Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, offering visitors an ideal setting in which to explore the amazing animals and plants that call our coastal region home.

With a diverse collection of animal ambassadors and hands-on, interactive exhibits, the Discovery Center inspires curiosity and exploration of the living earth in guests of all ages. Plan a day visit. Attend a day camp. Make a field trip. Volunteer your time. Discover what inspires you.

The Living Coast Discover Center, where wonder comes naturally on San Diego Bay

Founded by the City of Chula Vista in 1987, the center transitioned to a nonprofit organization in 2010 and was re-branded as the Living Coast Discovery Center in 2012 in anticipation of its 25th anniversary.
