2. Aquarium of the Bay

Go with the flow in this sprawling aquarium on Pier 59. This aquarium embraces the ecosystems of the Bay. Kids learn how seven different habitats create homes for the inhabitants. Sharks of Alcatraz, rays, octopus, jellyfish and river otters are among the 20,000 local marine animals. Walk through the glass-enclosed tunnels for face-to-fin encounters with creatures of the deep. The aquarium has a variety of Northern California aquatic life, including the Garibaldi, the bright orange California state marine fish.
