The Aquarium by the Bay is located on the south end of Pier 39. It’s smaller than other aquariums but has a great selection of marine life that come from the bay area and there’s a lot of hands-on to experience. Our kids LOVED touching the sting rays, the leopard shark, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, and more. We practically had to drag our youngest out! We were able to complete the tour in about ninety minutes. For more information, look on their website at AquariumOfTheBay.org.
