Monterey Bay Aquarium

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by 2go4fun on March 18, 2007

Rated as one of the top aquariums in the world, Monterey Bay Aquarium delivers on its promise to "inspire conservation of oceans." No matter the age, when people visit the aquarium, their eyes fill with wonder and excitement. We have been back to the aquarium time and time again, each time we visit, there is always something new to experience.

A Few Star Exhibits:

Sea Otters - Even though these furry and lively animals do not do "tricks" as in Sea World, they are great fun to watch for kids and adults alike. They especially like to "show-off" by swimming right up next to the windows when they see children.

Giant Octopus - Have you ever seen a giant octopus up-close? Here is your opportunity at the aquarium. People surround this exhibit to capture pictures and look in awe at the amazing creature.

Outer Bay - I never realized how beautiful jellyfish are until this exhibit opened in 1996. They feature the largest collection of jellyfish in the United States. But not only do they show jellyfish, they also have a gorgeous 1 million gallon tank filled with sea turtles, sharks, tuna, and other outer bay creatures.

Splash Zone - For the kids, or the kid in all of us. This section of the aquarium is designed for the little ones to explore and interact with ocean creatures. The biggest hit for everyone-the penguins!

Ticket prices vary by age. Adult tickets are $24.95. Child, student, and disabled tickets are also available for purchase at different rates. For more information, please visit
