Monterey Bay Aquarium, Newest CityPASS Attraction
CityPASS is proud to announce the newest addition to the San Francisco CityPASS program: the Monterey Bay Aquarium, home to sea otters, sharks, penguins, sea dragons and thousands of other marine animals and plants.
It's no wonder over 1.8 million people visit the aquarium each year; exhibits such as the Kelp Forest, Open Sea Galleries, and The Jellies Experience, to name a few, give visitors a view of life in the ocean that is both beautiful and educational. You can get touchy-feely with animals you don't usually get to touch (bat rays!), watch sea otters frolic both on the surface and underwater from their 2-story exhibit, view the mysterious, intelligent and beautiful giant Pacific octopus, and experience more than 15 species of the amazing seahorse – the only family in the animal kingdom in which the males get pregnant! Keep your eyes open and there's a good chance you may even spot humpback whales from the ocean view deck.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium isn't only about entertainment; in line with its mission to inspire ocean conservation, the aquarium supports ocean conservation policy on federal, state and local levels, and is active in conservation research.
To help welcome the Monterey Bay Aquarium to the CityPASS family of attractions, we've put together this fun infographic with some interesting facts about the aquarium and some important milestones in its history. Enjoy!
