      EVENT DETAILS
      Sea Jelly Touch Encounter

      The new Oregon Coast Aquarium Sea Jelly Encounter provides the opportunity to get hands-on with our moon jellies (Aurelia aurita). Visitors will learn about these ancient invertebrates and have a chance to touch the non-stinging ìbell,î or top of the jelly. The moon jelly is unique because even though the tentacles contain nematocysts (stinging cells) like other sea jellies, the cells are very weak and typically cannot even be felt by humans. The encounter includes access to our Behind-the-Scenes sea jelly growing area, where guests will discover our sea jelly program and view jellies at various life stages (that's rightóbaby sea jellies!). See the website for more information, times and to purchase tickets online.

      Cost: 25.00
