Aquarium of the Bay
Aquarium of the Bay is a unique nature center and the only aquarium dedicated to animals of the San Francisco Bay and neighboring waters. The Aquarium gives visitors the opportunity to feel like a skin diver without getting wet as they walk through the Aquarium's crystal clear tunnels and view more than 20,000 sharks, bat rays, skates, octopi and other aquatic animals. With daily and special activities, including behind the scenes tours, shark feeding presentations, a water discovery Lab for underwater detectives and much more; there is truly something for everyone to see, touch, discover and learn at the Aquarium of the Bay.
We spent 2 days in the Wharf. The Aquarium was a great stop (and we got out of the rain)
It had some informative displays and was no to crowded. The tickets were part of a discount Fisherman's Wharf pass we bought. We spent over an hour and had a great time at the end with the touch pools. Good family fun for our 2 teenagers too.
I took my Mother and the aquarium was very interesting. We also went on the bay tour. We had a good time but they showed us the same things the other two tours (Wine and Muir Woods) talked about. But they did go under the Golden Gate Bridge.
Very cool tunnel tanks filled with all kinds of fish from San Francisco Bay. You walk through the tunnels and shark actually swim over your head and next to you. Pretty jelly fish, too. Lots of helpful staff to answer your questions. Lots less expensive than most aquariums I've been to lately, so the 40 minutes it took to visit the exhibits was well worth the money.
We go to San Francisco almost every year for the fourth of July and the aquarium is one of the best part. I would recommend that you add it to your trip and then after enjoy the plaza. The aquarium is nice and a good place to take pictures.
Extremely disappointing. Expected a lot more being right next to the bay. We were able to walk through in about 10 minutes. Spent about the same amount of time waiting for the elevator to take me downstairs. You will walk in a tunnel under the water, which is interesting, but not worth the price to enter. The largest shark is only 3 feet long. You can touch a shark upstairs, and the shark is about 8 inches and in about 4 inches of water. Same for a sting ray.
I was looking forward to this stop on our trip, and was extremely disappointed.
Use the money to get a chowder bread bowl. Pass on this aquarium.
This was a great place for both kids and adults. It was really neat to be able to interact with the sealife. It took me about ten minutes work up the courage to touch the sharks but it was well worth it!
My girlfriend and I just loved this Aquarium. We're big nature lovers and this aquarium gave us an up-close look at the animals found right there in San Francisco Bay. We especially loved the touch pools where we could touch...yes, touch...some of the animals including sharks! The naturalists we spoke with really knew their stuff which really helped us when we had questions. It is smaller than other aquariums we have visited but that's because it is only focused on the animals of the bay. We think it is definitely worth visiting and recommend it to everyone.
Ticket admission for one adult is about $13. I took a good look at everything in the aquarium, and I was in and out within 30 minutes. This is third aquarium that I have ever been to - Virginia Beach and Seattle before this one. Aquarium of the Bay had the fewest exhibits and diversity of sealife out of the three aquariums I have been to. Staff I saw seemed withdrawn. I would not recommend this to anyone.
