Featuring lots of local sea creatures, the Aquarium of the Bay is a great place to learn about the wildlife of San Francisco Bay. There are over 20,000 animals to see, touch, and admire here, ranging from bat rays to sevengill sharks to sea stars. The aquarium is split into three areas: Discover the Bay, Under the Bay, and Touch the Bay. Discover the Bay allows visitors to learn about the animals that reside in the bay and what different ecosystems thrive there. Under the Bay comprises two clear underwater tunnels that allow visitors to step onto a moving walkway and experience life underneath the water with animals swimming all around. Finally, Touch the Bay provides the chance to explore tide pools and touch the various creatures that live near the shore--always a favorite with the kiddos.
