The Monterey Bay Aquarium is certainly one of the premier aquariums in the entire world. With approximately 550 different species on exhibit, a 3 story, 350,000 gallon main tank and an over 1,000,000 gallon Outer Bay tank, you can easily spend an entire day here. Sharks and tuna to penguins and rays are just a fraction of the over 350,000 plants and animals on display. About 1.8 million people visit the aquarium each year.
