California Sea Lions - user review
This was surprisingly one of our favorite parts of the trip to San Francisco. Adjacent to Pier 39 are about a hundred California sea lions that quite enjoy putting on a show. (They also draw a large crowd of onlookers.) When we were there in June, we saw a wide range of sea lions: about a dozen pups...

Amazing to see what is in the San Francisco Bay - user review
It was great to see what types of marine life are living in the San Francisco Bay. The Sharks and Rays were my favorite. The wolf and moore eels are amazing to see. The ancho...

Poor value for what's there - user review
Ticket admission for one adult is about $13. I took a good look at everything in the aquarium, and I was in and out within 30 minutes. This is third aquarium that I have ever be...

Walk through a tunnel of sharks! - user review
My husband and I absolutely loved Aquarium of the Bay. It only took about an hour to go through which was perfect since we wanted to to see the rest of Fisherman's Wharf and Alcatraz t...

Blue and Gold Fleet Bay Cruise - user review
The Blue and Gold Fleet Bay Cruise is a nice way to learn a little history about the area. On a nice day, what could be nicer than time spent on the water? However, be warned. The piped-in tour narrator's voice is not always easy to hear, and the wind can get a little chilly in San Francisco. The da...

Very cool, great for big kids too - user review
My husband and I visited here while on vacation and had a blast here. I admit I was a little disappointed at first with the limited amount of animals on display on top but then we ...

Aquarium of the Bay ROCKS! - user review
My girlfriend and I just loved this Aquarium. Were big nature lovers and this aquarium gave us an up-close look at the animals found right there in San Francisco Bay. We ...

Nice place, maybe little small - user review
The place is nice, a little tip in the tourist books you can find a cuponfor $2 off each ticket, leaving each ticket at $12 bucks not bad. Ok yes the place is a little small, but you se...

No title - user review
This is not just your ordinary Aquarium. I loved the tunnels and the fact that you can touch these rays and sharks. The staff was so friendly and helpful, even on a very busy weekend...

It could have been worse. - user review
The Aquarium really didn't have much to offer. You're ushered into an elevator where you are then led like cattle through the water-tube walkway. That was neat if you don't get panicky...

Aquarium of the Bay | Museum/Attraction Review | San Francisco | Frommers.com - expert review
The latest major addition to Fishermans Wharf is Aquarium of the Bay, a $38-million, 1-million-gallon marine attraction filled with sharks, stingrays, and more. A moving footpath transports visitors through clear acrylic tunnels. The aquarium ultimately is not a destination in itself, but its a good...

Waste of $$ - user review
If you're visiting or even living in the Bay Area, don't bother w/this attraction. It was so TINY for what they charge! What a waste of my $. If you're in the Bay Area, go to the Monte...

Red and White Fleets - user review
As I sat on the deck staring at the beautiful San Francisco sky line as the sun lit up the water and birds flew above, I realized this is the best way to travel. No bridge tolls or traffic jams to contend with. Instead, I ordered a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, found a comfortable seat and relaxed as I cr...

Blue and Gold Fleet Bay Cruise - user review
The 1 1/2 hour tour of San Francisco Bay is a nice little perspective with running narrative (which was a little difficult to hear much of the time). Departing Pier 39 every 45 minutes, the passengers are ferried north to the Golden Gate Bridge, and then return via the northern side of Alcatraz. Par...

Blue & Gold Bay Tour - user review
This tour is a nice, simple tour of the San Francisco Bay. You move up the SF Bay shorline from Pier 39 toward the Golden Gate Bridge. All along the way there is audio that describes the SF skyline and provides historical facts about the city. Then a fair amount of time is devouted to the the bridge...

Awesome Aquarium!! - user review
This place was great! The fish were amazing and the staff were all super friendly! Ill be back next time Im in S...
