Giant kelp provides food and shelter for a vibrant ecosystem.
Listen to live audio of our Kelp Forest feeding program and watch divers hand-feed sharks, fishes and other animals. If you're lucky, a wolf-eel will emerge to gulp some squid or fish.
Hop aboard the MST trolley for a fast, fun and free ride to the Aquarium! The trolley runs every 10 to 15 minutes with stops in downtown Monterey, Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row and the Aquarium. Look for the electric trolley in the fleet for an emission-free trip!
Our baby giant sea bass has grown from less than an inch to over a foot long—big enough to move to a new exhibit space on the second floor of the Kelp Forest. Stop by and say hello!
Want a preview of our Kelp Forest and other exhibits? A virtual visit is just a few clicks away with Google Maps Street View. Get a 360-degree look at the Aquarium as you stroll inside through our galleries or outside on our decks—all from the comfort of your computer.
