Aquarium of the Bay

Aquarium of the Bay is located at San Francisco's popular PIER 39. Its focus, as the name suggests, is local aquatic animals from the San Francisco Bay (and nearby waterways). There are three main exhibit areas, each with a specific point of focus. The most thrilling is the underwater tunnel, though the touch pools and naturalist talks also help make this an exciting and interactive way to get to know the bay.

The Snøhetta expansion (completed in 2016) doubled the amount of exhibition space at the SFMOMA. The seven-story structure also expanded the gallery areas and outdoor public spaces, giving a big injection of destination architecture to San Francisco's South of Market area. The SFMOMA's permanent collection is a whopping 33,000 works, and there are always temporary exhibitions as well. When in San Francisco's SoMa make time for the SFMOMA.

Explore San Francisco via its most unique trait: the water. With the best San Francisco boat tours, you’ll get within photo-worthy proximity of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and catch the city and its symbolic crossing at its best angles. Through the Golden City's trademark mist, you’ll see lazy sea lions lounging on the pier, seagulls swooping from above, and you may even get lucky to see evidence of the larger marine life, like whales and dolphins. With so many San Francisco Bay cruises to choose from, there’s no wrong way to see the Bay Area. Hitch a ride out to the infamous island of Alcatraz, a prison designed to be inescapable due to the rip currents and great white sharks rumored to patrol the rough waters.
