Collection of photos, brochures and clippings related to Marineland of the Pacific (Marineland), built on 65 acres of prime
oceanfront property known as Long Point on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
Marineland was built on land purchased from the Palos Verdes Corporation in 1953. It opened a year later on August 28, 1954.
Marineland was famous for its performing orcas, Orky and Corky. Marineland was also known for its Baja Reef concept, a first-of-its-kind
swim through aquarium featuring a wide array of sea life. In addition to the orcas, a pilot whale (“Bubbles”), dolphins, sea
lions, harbor seals and sharks, a number of other sea creatures were housed in its entertainment and research facilities.
