Monterey Bay Aquarium


The Monterey Bay Aquarium occupies the site of the former Hovden Cannery.
But instead of canning fish, the goal of the Aquarium is to protect the bay, offering the visitor an exquisite view of the abundance of mammals, fish and plants that populate Monterey's waters.
A visit to the Aquarium must include the three-story kelp forest, the hands-on touch pools, and the sea otter exhibit. Visitors can watch schooling tunas, sharks, sea turtles and other open ocean animals in the million-gallon Outer Bay exhibit.
One visit is probably not enough to see all of the aquarium.
