About Us

Ocean Connections is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to inspiring conservation awareness and public action for our world's ocean through education.  Ocean Connections has partnered with Oceans of Fun to further our dedication to the field of science, education, and providing a forever home for marine mammals in need.  It is our goal to further community engagement in conservation actions by fostering a relationship with our animal ambassadors as well as ensuring the exceptional welfare of the seals and sea lions that call us home.

Ocean Connections offers a variety of opportunities for children and families alike to discover the amazing world of marine mammals. We provide a wide array of interactive programs, allowing you to connect with our animals personally.

We hope that you have the opportunity to join us and experience the wonder of working with marine mammals. The opportunity to touch, feed, and interact with our flippered family awaits you!
