Expert Review of Santa Monica Pier Aquarium

Beach Review of Santa Monica Pier Aquarium

Away Travel Expert: Christine Loomis
BeachExpert Rating 4.0 out of 5
BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The aquarium is at beach level, below the carousel, and a nice diversion where you can learn about the sea habitats of Santa Monica Bay.
  • One of the highlights is Shark Sundays, at 3:30 p.m., when you can watch the sharks being fed and hear a presentation on these fearsome predators. There's a shark and ray tank—don't touch.
  • Exhibits do include a touch tank with tidepool critters, a kelp forest tank, and octopus tank. Want to know what lives under the pier? The pier tank has the answer—halibut, surfperch, enormous ochre sea stars, and more.
