Aquarium of the Bay

Meet local inhabitants of the San Francisco Bay and surrounding watersheds at Aquarium of the Bay, located at PIER 39 next to Fisherman’s Wharf. Experience the closest thing to being underwater when you walk through glass tunnels, with close-up views of local sharks, bat rays, Spiny Lumpsuckers and Garibaldis. Don’t know what some of those are? Go find out! Touch sea stars, anemones, and bat rays, and watch the river otters play in their watershed habitat. Leave with a smile!

San Francisco CityPASS
4.7 (3171)
Amazing
So happy I bought the citypass in San Francisco. It helped make my trip there unforgettable. Would definitely do it again!
Great Deal
Easy to use and save you quite a bit of money. Our family had a trip to San Francisco and didn’t know what to do out there and this gave us a great option to enjoy activities as a family while still getting to know parts of San Francisco.
Great
I bought Citypass for my boyfriend’s birthday to show him some cool places in the city and I thought it was perfect. We went to four different places, and it was extremely affordable. 10/10 would recommend.
Great value for money!
It was a great trip and we loved the city pass . Will definitely recommend !!
NorCal CityPASS
We had an amazing experience visiting Northern California and much of it had to do with the activities included within the San Francisco CityPASS we purchased. Thank you, CityPASS, for helping to create lasting memories for my family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad we got it Wasn't sure about getting City Pass, but glad we did! The Science Center was way cooler than I expected (and great way to spend a rainy day), the boat ride was awesome, and the Zoo/Aquarium were fun as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Experience We absolutely loved City Pass. It made transportation and attractions very accessible. It was our first time visiting San Francisco and my girls ages 10 and 8 loved all the places we went to. We highly recommend the Exploratorium, Academy of Science and Aquarium. You could easily spend an entire day each at the Exploratorium and Academy of Science.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very pleased! We were very happy with the CityPass, made transport all over the city so much easier! Between the public transport and passes to attractions it was worth every penny. We'd assuredly use it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Our family of 3 used the CityPass for San Francisco and it was excellent value for money. The attractions were varied and having the MUNI included in the pass made getting around easy. We would highly recommend to everyone and would definitely purchase again for our future travels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I bought a CityPass prior to leaving for my trip to San Francisco. It ended up being a great value! We were able to ride the cable cars multiple times and use the other modes of Muni to get to the sites. For the amount of attractions you get to see and the price, it is certainly worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value We bought the CityPass for our recent trip to San Francisco. It included a public transportation pass and admission to four attractions. It was the perfect amount of activities for our family without feeling rushed. We would definitely purchase a CityPass again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary Saves you tons of money - cable cars are $7 one way trip without the city pass. You have access to muni, Bart, and cable cars which are all extremely convenient and easy to use. I would have spent hundreds of extra dollars without the city pass. Great museums and activities offered. I would have gone to the same locations anyways, I just saved money doing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend I would highly recommend CityPass as the 3 day Muni Passport was a great value itself and I was able to use several of the tickets for attractions that I already planned on visiting. great value.
