Located at The Embarcadero and Beach Street explore the magic, beauty and wonder of San Francisco Bay at Aquarium of the Bay. The aquarium was opened in 1996. The Aquarium of Bay has around 60,000 fish and 273 species. It is truly an eye-opening, entertaining, and engaging invitation to the world of marine life. Take a trip downstairs and your adventure continues with more local fish and then the shark tunnel.
You walk through a tunnel that has hundreds of fish, sharks, and more and there is an employee there that can answer most any questions you have about the wildlife. There are many sharks, rays, and giant fish. They have two small tide pools where you can touch stuff like starfish, but these are pretty popular with the children. The sea otters were a lot of fun and you get to learn about the sea life in the San Francisco Bay. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The gift shop had many nice things as well.
