In this episode of Coastal Heritage, we look back at the history of our bluff, which was once home to the world’s largest oceanarium, Marineland. For nearly 30 years Marineland welcomed visitors to shows featuring orcas, seals, dolphins and other marine life. Now Terranea welcomes guests to enjoy a more tranquil setting, where you can still see whales swimming just off the cliffs.
