Default Monterey Bay Aquarium

Was there on Friday. Had gone in 2000, also. Just as amazing as ever! So impressive. One could spend a full day there. The presentations on sharks and sea otters were especially interesting, and we were able to watch feeding time for the sea otters. These animals are HUGE!
40 pounds?

The first picture is of two sea otters; they’re so quick in the water it was hard to photograph. On land, they drag themselves with their front paws, as their back appendages ate flippers.

Another thing I found interesting was they have an aviary, with sea and marsh birds they rescued. The Aquarium simulates the environment from which they come.

Big Sur, Carmel, Monterey. Some say it's the most beautiful area on earth. Hard to dispute.

I lived about 2 1/2 hours away and would go very often. I love the aquarium and the area. Absolutely gorgeous, can’t wait for my next trip there in a few months. So happy you enjoyed it, it does seem to get better and better every year
