Streaming in real-time, 24/7

Switch between two high-definition webcams and spot every detail on 10+ species of fish. Watch as cownose and honeycomb rays circle our mangrove lagoon exhibit in search of their next meal—and it’s not far away. Stop by Tuesday and Thursday at 1:30 pm PT to see the next feeding. Our cams are live both day and night. Seeing a dark screen? It’s likely nighttime. Please tune back in during daylight hours for more action.

The California Academy of Sciences is the only place in the world with an aquarium, planetarium, natural history museum, and 4-story rainforest all under one roof. Visit us online at to learn more and to get tickets.

Please note that this app depends largely on your wireless network’s quality of service and data rates may apply. A Wi-Fi connection is recommended.

Love it! Please improve video quality

This is such a great idea. Very peaceful to have on in the background. I only wish the video quality were better. I’m not even sure it’s 1080 and the image is a bit washed out. Would love a 4K stream for AppleTV one day... These complaints aside, I still love it and a big thank you to the developers and the California Academy of Sciences

To looking at reviews: this is a great app. I can watch stingrays in lagoon view, and reef view. Also, if I have no internet connection I can watch a prerecorded video! Totally recommend this!

To the developers: TYSM for creating this game! I love stingrays; especially honeycomb stingrays. I would like though if there could be multiple videos, and maybe a species log. I like the setup so don’t change the setup, but add what I requested.

Great idea and great app! Streaming under water live is educating, relaxing and even funny occasionally with little incidents (someone believed a worm was falling down and ate it to spat it out right away: it was pooping).
This morning a reddish shadow showed up in the lower right side of the screen at the lagoon camera. Can you please check it out? Thanks for the views!
