Aquarium of the Bay

The 50,000-square-foot Aquarium of the Bay houses three main exhibit areas devoted entirely to marine life native to the San Francisco Bay. These include Discover the Bay, where visitors are introduced to eight animal habitats and over a thousand species local to the Bay Area; Under the Bay, featuring Moon Jellies, giant Pacific octopuses, spiny dogfish, and swirling schools of anchovies; and Touch the Bay, whose touchpools offer a tactile interaction with sharks, rays, skates, and sea stars.

In addition to the permanent exhibits, the aquarium features a packed schedule of free-with-admission daily programs, which include lectures, feedings, and up-close animal encounters. Chat with a climate change naturalist at noon, watch a bat ray feeding at 12:30, learn how to help keep otters' habitats safe and clean at 2:15, then go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the tanks at 4. Your day will be action-packed, customizable however you'd like.
