Full Moon Pier Walks

A warm night lit by a full moon is the perfect time to explore one of La Jolla’s most prominent landmarks. The Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier, usually closed to the public, is used by scientists, students and aquarium staff for a variety of research projects. It also serves as a platform to collect local marine life and deploy small boats and oceanographic instruments.

During this moonlit walk along the entire 1,090-foot concrete pier, aquarium naturalists will teach participants about the history of Scripps Oceanography and current research projects, while collecting plankton, performing experiments, and learning more about the life below the pier. Ages 9+ (Ages 9-13 must be accompanied by a paid adult) .For a sneak peek at the view from the Scripps Pier, see the Scripps Pier Cam.
