About this San Francisco Tour
Experience the magic, beauty, and wonder of San Francisco Bay at this incredible waterfront aquarium, located on the famous Pier 39. Your experience will take you through three main exhibit areas, which display the rich diversity of animals that lie beneath the surface of the San Francisco Bay and surrounding waters. During your visit, you’ll witness one of the best and most beautiful array of animals all in one location.
Begin your experience at the Discover the Bay exhibit which features distinctive ecosystems that support an incredible variety of marine life. This exhibit is made up of several tanks containing animals such as eels, bay pipefish, native fish from the state, and many other incredible creatures. Another top exhibit is the largest one in the aquarium known as Under the Bay. Here, you’ll experience a scuba diver’s view without the scuba gear. This exhibit lets you walk through 300ft of crystal-clear tunnels with over 20,000 marine animals surrounding you.
The last exhibit you’ll see during your aquatic experience is the Touch the Bay exhibit. Feel what it’s like to touch a bat ray, leopard shark, sea stars, and other invertebrates. At this exhibit you’ll also learn in more detail about the San Francisco Bay, visit an interactive Bay Lab station, and see exhibits of more friendly creatures. Before you go, visit the Bay Theater to view award-winning films featuring the history of the bay and other fun facts.
