Monterey Bay Aquarium

The weather was beautiful so Gary and I decided to take a trip over to Monterey.  We thought we would visit the Aquarium and have lunch on Fisherman’s Wharf.  We were surprised that there were no lines to get into the aquarium and that we were able to park close to the entrance.  Not very many people touring the aquarium.  We were able to take a free 10 minute tour behind the scenes.  Great tour, got to see iddy biddy jelly fish.  The cost has sure gone up since our last visit.  We paid $29 per adult.  Had lunch in the small café inside, $10 for a hamburger and fries.  Maybe the cost has something to do with how few people were touring the aquarium.

On our behind the scenes tour, we were able to see baby scuttle fish and got to watch them feed.  Very interesting.

We were going to visit there while we were there but the price really changed our minds. Now the Alcatraz tour was well worth the price, but the aquarium...not so much.

Great photos, always a challenge to get good shots through the glass, but yours are fantastic.
