See the Bay in a Whole New Way at the Aquarium

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

It’s also all the creatures that thrive in the vibrant ecosystem below. At the Aquarium of the Bay, located just 10 minutes from our hotel, you’ll marvel at some 20,000 marine animals native to the Bay and housed in 300 feet of crystal clear viewing tunnels. We’re talking about sleek leopard sharks, massive seven-gill sharks, bioluminescent jellyfish, rays, skates, and so much more. Perhaps the most enchanting attraction of all, Octavio, the resident Giant Pacific Octopus, will delight you as he demonstrates his extraordinary strength by moving up to 700 lbs with all eight arms, his extraordinary intellect as he figures out the solutions to complex new puzzles, and his extraordinary beauty as he changes colors in a flash right before your eyes. All this an more awaits at Northern California’s number 1 aquarium.
