Monterey CA Aquarium

Visit the ethereal world of our Pacific Ocean with a trip to the fabulous Monterrey CA aquarium! I was blown away by what you can see, touch, read, view and even taste or smell in a couple of full days of visiting this marine biological wonderland. Plan to spend at least one full day at this attraction. Fortunately you can leave and come back with a single day’s entry to get out and enjoy the great food in the district around the building.

Visiting the central 50 ft. tall centerpiece container will take you an hour at least. Check out the massive central column of water 50 ft. tall with ocean going fish, massive kelp beds and even divers swimming freely.  A occasionalshark will glide by as you are mesmerized by the swarming fish balls with 1000 synchronized individuals.

Then go upstairs to the touching and tidepool areas and look at the plethora of five armed predators that crawl over the bottom, feeding abalone, corals and nudibranchs all within easy eye and photo range. Wow!

Even stingrays are there to pet!

Then around the corner is a shore birdbeach with the live birds nesting and feeding as if in the wild!

Take a break bywalking outside to see the penguines, giant sea otters and sea lions and after some fresh air head back  in to see the Jellyfish aquaria. Gravity defying shapes and sizes of all colors.

At the end of the day head on down to Fisherman’s wark not far away and have a fabulous meal with a dessert that is fit for a king or queen.
