Exhibits at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

 

The stunning one-million-gallon Outer Bay exhibit is home to the largest community of open-ocean animals to be found in any aquarium. Giant bluefin tuna power their way through the water. Hammerhead sharks circle inches away. Sea turtles cruise lazily by.

 

The Outer Bay also features the largest permanent collection of jellyfish species in the United States. Egg-yolk jellies and sea nettles drift gently in ten-foot-long exhibits beautifully lit to accentuate the jellies' delicate beauty. Comb jellies pulse with rainbow bands of light as they swim.

 

In the past, a wonderful exhibit of Jelly Fish and most recently “The Secret Life of Seahorses”; always something exciting to see at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
