Everyone was friendly and helpful. Only bonus would be if it was a little bigger, but was perfect since we were short on time.

Staff were nice and knowledgeable. It's a small aquarium so great for my younger son since he doesn't have much of an attention span. Definitely will come back for a visit.

Groupon membership pass pays for itself after just two trips. Kids loved the otter exhibit and seeing the sharks!

Although it is smallish, my girls were totally mesmerized. The otters were our favorite, but the pool looked quite small. Hopefully they can expand their exhibit and give those little cuties a serious swim hole! Infact all of the enclosures were quite small so it would be nice to see them all get some stretching room. We bought the family membership, I would recommend it if you live close to the bay or like us have to frequent UCSF.

About Aquarium of the Bay

Guests can explore the wonders of the San Francisco Bay ecosystem and join the movement to protect this special place they call home. Aquarium of the Bay at PIER 39 is the home to over 20,000 animals found in and around San Francisco Bay and the California Coast. The 50,000 square foot educational aquarium features four main exhibit areas:

  • Discover the Bay introduces guests to eight animal habitats and over a thousand species local to the Bay Area

  • Under the Bay allows guests to experience what it is like under the bay as they walk through two large tunnels featuring giant seabass, swirling schools of anchovies, and multiple species of sharks, including the Bay’s largest predator – the sevengill shark

  • Touch the Bay with touchpools is an adventure which offers a tactile interaction with sharks, rays, skates, and sea stars

  • Otters: Watershed Ambassadors provides a look into river otters' daily activities, such as playing, swimming, romping, and rolling.

Visitors' memberships help Bay.Org lead “free” field trips for 25,000+ students from the Bay Area.
