Since its opening in 1984 on historic Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s mission has been to inspire conservation of the oceans. This unparalleled facility, with soaring, glass-walled tanks letting you feel as if you’re truly under the sea, defines the standard for aquariums. Mesmerizing tanks and exhibits showcase more than 35,000 animals and plants representing over 550 species—a large number of them California natives.
