Feel Inspired by Underwater Magic with Monterey Bay Aquarium ActivitiesSubmerge yourself in an amazing undersea realm of graceful sea turtles, spine-tingling sharks, and psychedelic glowing jellyfish. Discover playful sea otters and pie-eyed tropical fish at one of the world's most famous aquariums, located right on the waterfront at Cannery Row. Explore unique ecosystems, including coastal tide pools, colorful coral reefs, and a three-story kelp forest. Watch penguin feedings and touch a real sea cucumber - if you dare. Learn about marine life and conservation through interactive exhibits that span from the California coast to the deepest ocean. Be mesmerized by beautiful seahorses and find seabirds in the aviary.
