Such an exciting aquarium to walk through during these times! Social distancing protocols were taken seriously while still being able to enjoy seeing the animals. Took about 45 minutes to walk through the aquarium, and you can walk down Pier 39 to see all the beautiful sea lions after!!

A must visit spot if you are in San Francisco downtown. You don’t want to come out of the aquarium. As I said, “ Hypnotic Experience”.

It was $10 cheaper on Cool Destinations than at the door. Plus we didn’t have to wait in line.... no brained! I highly recommend them!

This was one our last tours we took, it's a nice way to just relax and see some of the sea life that call the bay their home. It's not a big aquarium but it has some really nice features, make sure you take it in when in San Francisco.

I've been to the Pier 39 Bay Aquarium before and it has always been a great experience. The one thing that stands out is the touch-pool area when you can observe starfish, rays and small sharks extremely close-up. This was the first year I visited the aquarium at the Academy of Science which unfortunately blows Bay Aquarium out of the water, so to speak. Still, there is nothing wrong with the Bay Aquarium and I will always recommend it if you find yourself visiting Pier 39.

Good family fun! Smaller than avg Aquarium. But really like the shark/rays tunnel and feeding/touching Bat Rays.

Would have been nice if the staff at the ticket booth actually wanted to sell me a ticket instead of talking to each other. I ended up buying my ticket online
