Oh where to start!? Monterey Bay Aquarium has been ranked as one of the worlds top aquariums, and more importantly, one of the best places for kids! There are so many weird and wonderful species that you would rarely come across because they are enjoying life under the sea.
There is a fun “Splash Zone” which is great for those aged 0-12 - there are interactive exhibits, plus penguins, seahorses, and lots of other fun sea creatures.
There are also “touch pools” where kids can really explore with their senses - can you guess what a slimy sea cucumber feels like? Or a prickly anemone? Here you can find out.
There are always new and fascinating exhibits to explore, so make sure you ask what it on show during your visit to avoid missing out. There are also daily shows and feedings so check times for those too, including the feeding of the sea otters, learning how they car for the adorable penguin colony and the important Whales to Windmills which shows off inventions to help our planet, inspired by these beautiful creatures of the ocean.
Fancy falling asleep next to the sounds of the water and the colors of the fish? You can! The aquarium also offer various sleep overs which provide you with some late night snacks, movies, as you see the ocean from a whole different light. Get your toothbruses ready!
