    This is a small but fun aquarium that has been around for years. It is, however, very pricey for what it offers in terms of experience. You see the sea creatures swim around you but the price you are better off at the California Academy of Sciences of going to the Monterey Bay Aquarium which is certainly worth the scenic drive. This experience only last about 30 minutes but if you are showing people from out of town this could be a fun trip especially for children.

    While a lot smaller than I expected – it was still an interesting place to check out. Loved the tunnel, and the fact that they showcase the wildlife that is ‘local’. Check out their tour options as some might offer more access and a better interactive experience. Not a bad way to spend 30-60 minutes at the bay. All that said – I’m fine with only visiting once.

    I LOVE THIS PLACE! I came here for the first time on my birthday last July. The jelly fish and otters were my favorite part. I think it’s really cool that this aquarium is dedicated to the local animals. It’s neat to be able to see what lives under the water of the Bay. Although this aquarium is not very large it is still lots of fun and I recommend to local and tourists alike. Plus, they started doing a 21+ nightlife once a month, similar to Cal Academy called Aquapalooza. It makes a great date night.

    I rated this aquarium based off my kids’ experience and not the size. You pay a ton for the little amount you get. You can pretty much walk through the place in 30 minutes, and that is stopping at the exhibits, taking pics and touching stuff. The aquarium is well set up, and although small, has a ton of marine life! Although i found it amusing but not awesome, the kids had a blast! I think that is all that matters.

    Was not super impressed by this aquarium. We were in and out in less than 20 minutes. The aquarium at the Academy of Sciences is much more interesting. The bay aquarium is very small. The best thing about it is the tunnel of sharks and rays. I was excited to see the otters but at the time they were asleep and curled in a dark cave. We had a groupon so it didn’t feel like a huge waste of money, but I would rather pay more and go somewhere bigger.
