Situated in Monterey’s historic Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium was a former sardine cannery and is now one of the leading aquariums in the world setting the standard for ocean conservancy and marine research. Showcasing over 35,000 animals and plants with interactive exhibits and incredible viewing decks, you’ll get an insight to marine life on the bay you won’t get anywhere else on your coastal holiday.
Dive into a kelp forest, visit the open sea or explore a rocky shore. View Sea Otters, penguins, sharks and octopus – plus passing wildlife in the bay, including whales, seals and sea lions.
There is so much to see and do, it truly is a complete day out. The Aquarium also offers a behind-the-scenes tour, special daily shows and animal feedings. You can even book a sleepover! Families will most certainly want to include this in their holiday, but equally couples will find something to impress and amaze if nothing more than a meal and glass of wine in the restaurant set amongst the most spectacular ocean views.
