BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Located at Pier 39 and built partially over the Bay, the aquarium showcases the rich, diverse aquatic ecosystem of the Bay and surrounding waters.
  • The main attraction is under the Bay: A moving walkway takes you through two clear tunnels, 150-feet-long each, surrounded by 700,000 gallons of filtered Bay water and some 23,000 Bay animals. There are also touch pools and interpretive exhibits.
  • You get discounted prices if you buy tickets online (they're good for three months from purchase). The aquarium is open until 8:00 p.m. summers and until 6:00 p.m. other seasons.
