Northern Shores

Northern Shores brings the wonders of aquatic life to Denver. Home to popular daily California sea lion demonstrations, this exhibit showcases the power of the polar bear, the slick swimming skills of the seal and sea lion and cuteness of the river otter and arctic fox. Underwater viewing at both the polar bear and sea lion exhibit fascinate children and adults alike.
