Aquarium of the Bay

05 Sep

Our City Passes included entry to Aquarium of the Bay, so while we were at Pier 39 we popped in to visit.

It’s not a very big attraction but it was a nice way to spend a morning.

Plus they had my favourite sea creatures – jellyfish.

So pretty

I could watch jellyfish – in tanks – for ages.

The boys enjoyed the touch tanks.  They always do.

The aquarium had a great walk through aquarium

and the expected shark swimming overhead.

The boys enjoyed getting up close and personal with the fish.

I’m not so sure the wildlife felt the same.  🙂

There were some cool hands on activities for the kids to do.  My boys enjoyed this magnascope

But the aquarium had more than just fish.

There were various reptiles and amphibians there too.

I loved this opossum.

Don’t ask me why he was in an aquarium.  Maybe they live near water or something.  I don’t know.

But isn’t he…or she…adorable.

The aquarium had a new exhibit  – the otters – that was advertised all over San Francisco.

I don’t know what was so special about it though.  Sure the otters were cute but it was just a standard exhibit, as far as I could tell.

Overall, the aquarium was okay.  We met a few new creatures we hadn’t seen before so that made our trip worthwhile.  Whether I’d return?…Hmmm…probably not.
