Small Aquarium, Easy and Quick Stop at Pier 39

Flag review

Tips for Families

If you've been to large aquariums like the Shedd in Chicago or Monterey Bay then Aquarium of the Bay might be a letdown but if you're looking for a short visit that packs alot into a small space it's worth it. Aquarium of the Bay is part of the CityPass San Francisco booklet so it's easy to stop in and check it out - it's right near the Rocketboat/Blue and Gold Harbor cruise that's also part of the CityPass.

This is right in the middle of the action at Fisherman's Wharf at the famous Pier 39! There is a lot to see and potentially buy here, and we grownups love the chowder in a sourdough bowl!

This place was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. They had a decent amount of exhibits, but the main highlight was the underwater walk through aquarium. It was much larger than some a...
