Foursquare Tips

  • Walk Under The Sea @ The Bay Aquarium!! <3
  • Not worth it. The California Academy of Sciences at Golden Gate Park offers a similar aquarium along with way more stuff (rainforest, ostriches, planetarium). Go there instead.
  • Shockingly small for the price. Unless you're getting in for 1/2, avoid this.
  • Tourist trap. Monterey Bay Aquarium is better.
  • You're in and out in about 30min. Go to Academy of sciences, you'll see way more animals. And you wont feel ripped off. And get a citypass!
  • Go see fish!
  • Let's talk numbers: The 65,000 square foot facility features 300 feet of crystal clear acrylic tunnels holding over 700,000 gallons of filtered bay water home to over 20,000 aquatic animals.
  • Get a discount card from the welcome center to save a few dollars.
  • The best place to go! Even better then The Alcatraz Island!!! Try this first and after u go to Alcatraz!!
  • It's a bit pricey for what you see... But the kids love it.
  • Great under water view of the ocean
  • Get a discount before you go in but is cool and worth a try at least once.
  • Over priced for size.
  • The otters ate coming soon you otters be here
  • Fun place for kids.
  • Not worth your time. Small. Old. Go to California Academy of Sciences instead.
  • Free passes via Berkeley public library "discover and go" program!!!
  • Nice, but entrance fee is a bit high for what you get to see
  • Only .2 miles from our hotel!
  • Pet the cute leopard shark... He won't bite :)
