Comments Having grown up in San Pedro, Ca. I enjoyed it when my Father took our family to Marineland. We enjoyed it extensively. I was sorry when I heard it closed up and all behind it. I feel if it was still open and the marine mammals stayed there instead of going to Sea World it would definitely have given Sea World a run for it's money as I would have definitely made the trip up there so my children could have experienced the joy I did. Thank you for making my childhood an enjoyable one there. Joe V now of San Diego.

Comments I worked at Marineland in the gift shop In 1970-71 while in college. I had such fun! I wish I could have seen more behind the scenes but my boss told us if any of us girls were caught talking to a trainer we would be fired! The guys could go wherever. That would never fly today. But in spite of that I have fond memories of watching training sessions for the young dolphins while I manned the hat stand. When they were tired of of the session the dolphins would start tossing their fish rewards back and forth to each other. Class was over and it was time to play.

Comments I went to Marine Land when I was in the third grade. Had a great time visiting the park. My cousin and I tried to collect all of the wax figures of different park animals that were sold from the hot wax machines.

Comments I found some video of the CA attraction that my parents shot back in the 1960's. I would be happy to send it to you. Its in a "CA family vacation video" so someone would need to cut this part out. Not sure if this is the same place but I sent some slides 2 years ago as well. We recently digitized our entire photo and video collection and have lots of reviewing still to do.

Comments Thank you for establishing this site. My family used to visit my aunt and uncle in Orange County every summer and Marineland was always an exciting part of the visit. Thank you for preserving some sense of one of my favorite childhood memories.

Comments I was sorry to find out the park is closed down. Spent my 10th birthday here in 1968. Glad to know though it is still being used for research and marine preservation.

Comments my father was a tugboat captain in the near by harbor. Does anyone remember Marvin that worked at Marineland for years. I was friends with his Mother Josephine and step father Johnnie Olivera for years growing up. I had such a great time at Marineland.

Comments I visited Marineland on July 11, 1986, less than a year before it closed. I lived in Germany, and I had come to California for the first time. Staying with relatives in Santa Monica, I completely succumbed to the magic of the Golden State, and Marineland was surely part of it. I especially remember the Orca (which of the two was it?), the dolphins, and the high divers. I still have ca. 20 pictures (35 mm slides), including one of the orca snatching a fish from the trainer's mouth high up in the air. I wonder whether you could use them. I wish I had kept my brochure. I also remember the talk about Marineland's imminent closure, which seemed strange to me as the entire park buzzed with life (marine and human). I revisited the site on Thanksgiving 2008. Terranea was approaching completion. I got out of my car, but I could not enter the property (not legally, I mean). From the road, I could not make out any vestiges of Marineland. Nobody was around. The scene seemed surreal.

Comments In 1980 my parents and I treveled to California, and we went to Marineland, I was shocked by the park facilities, I remember the huge tank with sharks and fish, it was incredible. I went to Sea World, but the magic was gone it will never be as amazing as Marineland.

Comments I was a regular at Marineland since I was a little girl. At least once a year. It was the beginning of a life long interest and love of marine life.
