Opened in the spring of 2004, the Pennington Marine Science Center is a one-of-a-kind aquarium and marine science education facility located on Catalina Island, just 28 miles from greater Los Angeles. Situated on the rugged and relatively uninhabited West End of the island, the Pennington Marine Science Center offers visitors and students unparalleled opportunities to get up close and personal with the local marine life of Emerald Bay.
