Before you go

Monterey Bay Aquarium

One of the world's top sea life centers, this incredible tourist attraction on Cannery Row is perched on the California coastline and offers an amazing experience of an underwater world. From floating neon jellyfish and cheeky sea otters to graceful giant tunas and schools of silver sardines, the Monterey Bay Aquarium will enchant animal lovers of all ages. Be sure to see at least one feeding program, and don't miss the touch tanks where you can get personal with an invertebrate from the sea floor.

  • What is there to do besides going on a tour?

    This is one of the world’s top aquariums, and you certainly don’t need a guided tour to get the best experience. Wander around on your own and enjoy all the exhibits, shows, animals and special programs like kids sleepovers.
  • How long does it take to see the aquarium and when is the best time to come?

    Plan on at least a half-day to experience this massive animal center. Avoid the weekends unless you enjoy gigantic crowds of screaming children; visit during the afternoon on weekdays for the least crowded experience.
