S.F. Bay Area — California
Aquarium of the Bay
"Touch the Bay"
Always a favorite with aquarium visitors, the "Touch the Bay"
exhibit space has two Touch Pools where visitors can touch
marine animals — Leopard
Sharks, Skate, Bat Rays, Guitar Fish — and more Giant-Colored Starfish
than we could count! We saw our first-ever Sunflower Starfish
Bay Lab & Land Animals
The Bay Lab features a variety of local and exotic
Animals — some
of which can be touched. Enjoy animal interactions, hands-on science experiments
and special presentations.
Great for Kids!
Kids will love visiting the Aquarium of the Bay — it's fun,
interactive and educational... and will keep them occupied for hours.
