Otter Outlook

Visit up close with curious and playful sea otters.

Located right next to Dolphin Point, Otter Outlook is home to four playful California sea otters rehabilitated and hand raised by SeaWorld through a cooperative effort with the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Sea Otter Research and Conservation Program.

California sea otters are found exclusively along the coast of central California and can be seen at Otter Outlook. Lacking an insulating blubber layer, these otters are covered in dense, luxurious fur that keeps them warm. In fact, they have the densest fur of any mammal with up to 1,000,000 hairs per square inch.

Because they have an extremely fast metabolism, California sea otters eat about 20 to 25 percent of their body weight daily. For an otter weighing 100 pounds, this would be 25 pounds of food every day. Check the times listed at Otter Outlook during your visit to catch an exciting feeding demonstration and presentation by otter behaviorists.

Helping Paws

Helping Paws

All too often, troops who are willing to pay the ultimate price can’t afford to pay unexpected veterinary bills. The Helping Paws Foundation helps keep military families united with their pets by providing low and no-cost veterinary care for troops and veterans in need. Without our 501(c)(3), a lot of vets would face the heartbreaking decision of premature relinquishment, or worse yet, economic euthanasia.

Wee Companions

Wee Companions

Our mission is to rescue guinea pigs, rats, hamsters, and other small exotic mammals from shelters, places of abandonment, and from persons relinquishing their pets. Whenever possible, we offer a safe house to these animals, irrespective of age, temperament, or health status. These animals will receive veterinary care and socialization in the hopes that they will be placed in a "forever" home. Animals given Sanctuary Status will be placed in our Foster Care Network to live out their lives in comfort and with love. We are also focused on educating foster parents, school children and others on the care, feeding and prevention of unwanted litters of these animals.
