Know Before You Go
Follow your child’s lead.
Children often surprise us with their interests. Observe your child. What types of activities does your child enjoy most? What activities keep your child’s attention the longest? These observations help you to understand and appreciate your child more.
“Read it again!” Repetition, repetition, repetition.
Young children can sometimes exasperate us with their singular fascinations, but those are an important part of child development as children learn through repetition.
Of course, you can always ask one of our friendly staff members for help anytime during your visit.
There’s a lot to do in and around Ocean Quest.
Visit the latest traveling exhibit, explore hands-on learning in the Ocean Lab, and enjoy the rest of the day exploring the Balboa Village with rides and great food at the Balboa Fun Zone (just steps away from Discovery Cube’s Ocean Quest). Make it a day trip and hang out at the beach (just across the street!) or scout out local restaurants and shops throughout the Balboa Peninsula.
