Marineland of the Pacific

Here are some cool 1950s postcards of one of my favorite places at the time. Marineland of the Pacific in Palos Verdes, Southern California. Not a big fan of these types of places now. There is an ocean for these fish and mammals, and that is where they belong. ENJOY!

At the bottom of the Porpoise Pool in the world's largest Oceanarium, Smiley and Zippy, bottle nosed porpoises, take food from a diver while little cousin Elsie, a Pacific white sided dolphin, circles at the left waiting her turn.

Spectators crowd the Porpoise Pool Stadium several times daily to watch trained porpoises perform in the world's largest Oceanarium. The oval tank beyond contains more than 3,000 fish and sea animals, including Bubbles, the pilot whale. In the distance are Southern California's Palos Verdes Hills.

Sea arena from backstage - Seating more than 3,000 spectators, this magnificent outdoor arena is the scene of trained porpoise and sea lion games and acts during Marinelands Sea Circus. Part of the huge Oceanarium appears at the top.
