Monterey Aquarium

Monterey Aquarium is one of those places that seems to strike the balance between tourism and real conservation perfectly. They have been at the forefront of creating the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, stretching 276 miles down the coast and 30 miles from shore. Their tanks are enormous, with thousands of gallons of fresh seawater pumped in every day.

Many species are here because of injury, and they don’t display performing animals such as dolphins or seals. The exhibits guide you through different aspects of marine life, including an enchanting two story kelp forest, life on the coral reef and a hypnotic and mesmerising jellyfish display. At the heart of the aquarium is a plea for each one of us to take responsibility for the oceans and the life within them. If you get the chance to visit here I couldn’t recommend it enough. It will change your perception of life beneath the waves. The ocean is mysterious, magical and above all, magnificent.
