The Open Sea exhibit is a mysterious, mesmerizing world where life looms large. The stunning one-million-gallon exhibit is home to one of the most diverse communities of open-ocean animals to be found in any aquarium. Giant bluefin tuna power their way through the water, while hammerhead sharks, pelagic rays and giant green sea turtles swim just inches away.
The mission of the non-profit Monterey Bay Aquarium is to inspire conservation of the oceans. Located at the ocean's edge, the Aquarium is your window to marine life, home to sea otters, penguins, sharks, jellies, and thousands of other marine animals and plants.
