Story Time takes place in Clownfish Cove, which is located in the underwater viewing area of the Wild Coast gallery. Clownfish Cove is designed to allow children to explore and build on their understanding of our world. The gallery offers tips for caregivers to guide the children through their explorations and play. Children can also get up close to live animals through touch exhibits, glass crawling tunnels and fun displays.

Clownfish Cove fosters children’s connections to the natural world—all through exploration and play. When children play, they develop their imagination and creativity, as well as their language, social and problem-solving skills. By role-playing the part of a junior animal technician, getting close-up looks at local marine species and learning about the dolphin research we do at the Aquarium, kids will start to understand the wonders of the marine world and why it’s important to help protect it.
