Since its opening in 1984 on historic Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s mission has been to inspire conservation of the oceans. Recently named the #1 Aquarium in the World by the 2014 TripAdvisors Travelers Choice Award, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is known for its innovative exhibits and unsurpassed visitor experience.

With more than 35,000 creatures representing over 550 species in nearly 200 exhibits filling 34 major galleries it is a showcase for the habitats and sea life of one of the world’s richest marine regions. Also named the #1 family-friendly aquarium by Parents Magazine, the aquarium has grown to become one of the leading ocean conservation organizations in the world. Travelers can find more information about the aquarium’s exhibits and the local marine environment, plus live web cams, a special events calendar, special discounts, behind-the-scenes tours and more at www.montereybayaquarium.org.
