Aquarium of the Bay

Breathtaking marine life isn’t the only thing that will amaze and delight visitors at the Aquarium of the Bay, as the aquarium also boasts a comedic magic act, a remodeled 3-D theater and a newly enhanced jellyfish exhibit. The 75-minute magic show blends classic illusions with modern magic, jaw-dropping routines, impossible predictions and more inside the beautifully refurbished Bay Theater. There also are two newer movies in 3-D, “The World of Sharks” and “Turtle Vision.” The updated jellyfish exhibit will showcase old favorites like the ghostly, luminescent Moon jellies, while welcoming three new species, including the bizarre upside-down jellies. Also, wander through 300 feet of underwater tunnels and visit the touch pools, where you can get up close and personal with leopard sharks, bat rays and sea stars.
