The Monterey Bay Aquarium is a family friendly Aquarium that has lots of great kids activities. This aquarium is in an old fish cannery. It’s pretty cool and they even left some of the old factory equipment in place. Here you will see everything from clown fish to sharks, and even giant sea turtles. They are now featuring a great white shark.
They have a lot of touch pools for the kids as well as sand and water play for them.
They have a neat walkway that goes tight along the bay that you can get to from the aquarium. We say starfish, birds, sea otters, and a seal in the wild right there. If you go back into the aquarium you will be able to see sea otters and starfish in the tanks.
This is very pricy. It was $21.50 for adults and our infant son was free. We got a $5.00 off admission card that was in one of the California Tourism Magazines that are free. It was an orange card that was stuck to the state map.
You kids will have a lot of fun. It is made for kids in my opinion.
