See The Bay In A Whole New Way At The Aquarium

October 02, 2020

One of the most iconic features of San Francisco, the Bay, has long been associated with romance and cosmopolitan adventure in film, TV shows, and literature. But the Bay is more than just the breathtaking panoramic views it affords from above.

It is also home to millions of creatures that thrive in the vibrant ecosystem just below the sea. At the Aquarium of the Bay, a scenic 30-minute drive from our hotel, you will have the opportunity to marvel at some 20,000 marine animals native to the Bay Area. Behind 300 feet of crystal clear viewing tunnels are playful river otters, curious sea stars, bioluminescent jellyfish, and stealthy seven-gill shark.

Perhaps the most enchanting attraction of all is the habitat for the resident Giant Pacific Octopus. They will delight you as they demonstrate their extraordinary strength by moving up to 700 lbs with all eight arms, their extraordinary intellect as they figure out the solutions to complex new puzzles and their extraordinary beauty as they change colors in a flash right before your eyes. All this and more awaits at Northern California’s Number 1 Aquarium!
