Aquarium of The Bay highlights

Discover the Bay you’ll begin with an introduction to the unique ecosystems that support the area’s marine life. Eight exhibits make up this gallery, featuring over a thousand aquatic animals native to the San Francisco Bay.

Under the Bay – descend beneath San Francisco Bay and see moon jellies and pacific sea nettles. Next, walk through two crystal-clear tunnels, 300 feet in length, completely surrounded by 700,000 gallons of bay water and over 25,000 animals. The first tunnel contains anchovies, giant sea bass, and impressive sea stars, while the second tunnel is home to marine life that thrives in the deeper waters of the Bay, including massive Sevengill sharks and giant skates.

Touch the Bay home to PG&E Bay Lab, this interactive exhibit features land animals and their various habitats, highlighting the negative effects of climate change.
