Aquarium of the Bay Entrance

Explore the magic, beauty and wonder of San Francisco Bay at Aquarium of the Bay.  Your visit will take you through three main exhibit areas that display the amazing riches that lie beneath the surface of the San Francisco Bay and surrounding waters.

The Bay and the Animals Who Call it Home - approximately 20,000 animals who live in the Bay and nearby waters, from octopuses to eight-foot sevengill sharks. Guests are also treated to mesmerizing walls of jellies and a chance to have up close and personal encounters with leopard sharks, bat rays, skates, and other “splash zone" animals.

By connecting our guests with native marine animals in an engaging and meaningful manner, we nurture transformative, emotional connections that inspire conservation advocacy. Because we reach over 600,000 people a year, these connections have high impact. 

Exploring environmental challenges: 

  • Climate change, habitat loss, water pollution, and unsustainable harvest.
  • Provide research on local shark populations
  • Bring back native salmon
  • Assist chefs, restaurants and consumers in selecting sustainable seafood
  • Remove invasive species from marine and estuary environments
  • Support endangered species
  • Educate the public and combat climate-induced sea level rise
  • Enact policy that will create healthy fresh water flows back to San Francisco Bay

Our research efforts are grounded in peer-reviewed science and focus on monitoring and improving life for all San Francisco Bay species. We work both alone and in partnership on research, including shark monitoring and captive breeding programs. Our goal is to understand how best to ensure that native animals can thrive in the busy, much used waters of San Francisco Bay, its estuary, marshes and tributaries.

I am glad I got the discount. The aquarium was nice but it was way too short. Within an hour you will be outside again, unless you wait for one of the shows. Not worth the full price in our opinion.

Very nice little waterfront aquarium - we especially liked the walk-through parts where scuba divers floated by, cleaning and maintaining the habitat!
