Window to the Ocean World

Oceans are responsible for sustaining human life. Yet, each year, animals which once thrived in the salty depths wash upon the shore and are marked as highly endangered or extinct. The Monterey Bay Aquarium strives to slow and eventually reverse these common occurrences by integrating science-based conservation applications while educating the public on the importance of the global symbiotic relationships.

Of course, to many visitors that just means they get to see and learn about a lot of really cool creatures. Located on the historical Cannery Row waterfront, the family friendly aquarium provides unique views of rare fish, tentacled creatures, sharks, baby puffins, and so much more to make a single visit the highlight of the season. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is known as one of the best aquariums in the country and certainly worth a visit on your Monterey County trip plan.
