To maintain its uniqueness, the Monterey Bay Aquarium adopted a natural habitat sea ecosystem and coastline. It’s not just the display, but a real replica of sea life.

Awesome surroundings are designed for displays containing acrylic-enclosed tanks, a gemstone jellyfish container, a large giant-kelp forest in a 335,000-gallon three-story container, and a million-gallon shark tank. The Monterey Bay Aquarium also displays sea turtles, stingrays, sea otters, giant pacific octopus, sea horse, and penguins just to name a few.

To maintain its realistic habitat, all the possible ocean conditions are taken care off. Water is directly drawn from the bay itself allowing the natural organisms that nourish the bay to be produced in the tanks during evening time. During the day, the water is strained for more clarity. Every tiny detail has been accounted for, to provide visitors the benefit of experiencing the sea without getting wet.

If you are planning your visit, the Aquarium is open every day except Dec. 25th – Christmas Day. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with slightly shorter hours in the winter and longer during the summer. The entrance fee is about $29.95.

A free smartphone app is available as well which provides all the latest updates, assists you in exploring the aquarium, and plans your trip. Even pictures can be shared with your friends and family using this app so be sure to download it before your arrival.
