Before Seaworld There Was Marineland
A Private Tour Through Palos Verdes Peninsula Goes Near
Before Shamu down at SeaWorld in San Diego there were Orky and Corky up here on the Palos Verdes Peninsula at Marineland of the Pacific. From 1954 until 1987 we had an oceanarium here in Los Angeles that drew multitudes to watch killer whales and dolphins perform in pools overlooking the Pacific Ocean. While it was sad to lose such a popular destination as well as a fantastic restaurant location with views of the sea and Catalina Island (on clear days), the idea of keeping such creatures confined in pools and performing tricks for the public is not as acceptable today as it was back then as seen by the problems arising at nearby Seaworld. We think it might be better that the fabulous Terranea Resort and Trump National Golf Course has taken the place of Marineland with its PGA level golf course and other luxury amenities. Many Terranea guests enjoy our private Los Angeles tour. We can pick them up at the resort in our luxury SUV or land in our helicopter to take them on an enjoyable aerial tour of Los Angeles.
