You’ll find the Shark Cam, the Seabird Cam and the Otter Cam now.

Each camera has a unique take on their subjects, and viewers can control the zoom and direction the camera points. You can see footage from the past, take your own snapshots and even listen to the birds in the aviary.

The Seabird Cam was installed just in time for baby chick season, and Aquarium staff encourages viewers to check out the “beach” view on the Seabird Cam for a close-up look at a fertile common murre egg. Staff expect the egg to hatch at any moment, and when it does, viewers will get to see the not just the emergence but they’ll be able to watch the chick grow as it’s cared for by its feathered parents.

Here, birds do a wobbly walk around this constructed shoreline and you can even hear their beautiful and engaging calls. Especially endearing are the puffins wandering past.

With perfect timing for Shark Week, the Shark Cam has gone live just ahead of what is practically a national holiday. Shark Week begins July 28, but you can watch them now and celebrate by tuning into the camera at 11:15 a.m. every day for schooling fish feeds. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays there are shark feeds at 2 p.m. Viewers will also be able to regularly view volunteers and staff diving throughout the exhibit for cleaning, feeding and leading the Guest Dive Program. On this one, you can watch scores of fish wiggling past on a consistent basis while sharks do frequent passes. It’s a little hypnotizing.

Viewers can watch the Otter Cam for daily Sea Otter feeds at 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. See Nuka, Schuster and Oswald’s husbandry tasks like dental and body checks as well as their usual playful antics. Periodically they’re simply out of view and you see nothing but a pool. But when they’re present it’s amusing.
