Stingray Cove™ Experience

Living Exhibits

Stingray Cove is a seasonal, open-air interactive experience that allows you to get up-close and personal with four beautiful species of sea life. Inspired by the unique landscape and vibrant culture of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, this permanent seasonal open-air exhibit gives you the chance to touch and feed gentle cownose and southern stingrays as they swoop and glide freely around the 15,000-gallon tank they share with peaceful bamboo and bonnethead sharks. Learn more about Stingray Cove!
