    Marineland Remembered

    For anyone that remembers Marineland of the Pacific in Palos Verdes, California..theres an exibit at the Point Vincente Interpretive Center featuring souvineers and items from Marineland.

    On another note, I was walking behind an undisclosed location where I stumbled upon Bubbles the whale, and old Marineland Facades.


    Heres a pic of where he was when Marineland was operational.


    Kind of sad actually...poor bubbles

    Thanks for the info. My Dad used to have his company picnics there and I really enjoyed that place.

    Two great sites with lots of info and photos of Marineland of the Pacific.

    I remember going there a few times in the 70s as a kid, including once on a field trip with my school, but in its later years it tended to get eclipsed by SeaWorld in San Diego. It closed in 1987.

    There's also a book, A Photographic Journey Back To Marineland of the Pacific, written by former Marineland gift shop clerk and camera boy Jim Patryla. Related items include a calendar and a CD of Marineland sounds, originally sold in Marineland shops on LP.
