Fisherman's Wharf wouldn't be complete without this place. Very educational about the Bay Area's aquatic life and how to protect it. Lots of fun things for the kids and yet a nice place to take a date.

If you have never been to an aquarium, then you may find this enjoyable. Otherwise, this venue seems to be designed for small children.

It's a great little aquarium. It's much smaller than, say, the Monterey Bay aquarium -- mostly because there's just not that much room for an aquarium on the wharf -- but it still has an impressive number of exhibits, most notably a long tunnel...continued

The aquarium was pretty cool, especially for the size of it. The otter exhibit was incredibly underwhelming. For all the ads that are around the city, you'd expect it to be pretty cool. It was very small, and not cool or informative at all. ...continued

The experiencs was wonderful because for 1 hour you are eye to eye with the sea life of the northern pacific. Walking through the clear tunnels and being surrounded by the sealife was breathtaking..........

This Aquarium is acceptable for children who are about 12 years old or younger. For older children and adults, it's actually kind of boring. The Aquarium is very small and you can get through the entire thing in about 15 minutes. I think we spent...continued

A smaller aquarium than San Francisco's Steinhart, but has good displays and lots of information on the displays. If you want to visit an aquarium and do not make it an all day visit, this aquarium would fit the ticket (we were there (2 adults)...continued

For what it is and for Goldstar prices, this place is really good. You just have to bear in mind that it is small (it's no Monterey Bay Aquarium) and somewhat low tech. But there are still really cool exhibits and nice hands-on ones as well. It...continued

Great size aquarium for younger children. Lots of displays--the small petting display with bat rays and skates (along with a few small sharks)was GREAT!

The marine animals were well displayed. We especially liked the tunnel with fish on either side and above. Only 1 river otter was out, but he was very active. The other 2 were hiding up in a tree!

The most fascinating part of the exhibit was walking through the tunnels through the aquariums. The tanks were a bit drab, but it was great fun. There was something for children as well as adults. Not as large as the Steinhart or Monteray...continued

Very small does not compare to other larger aquariums. But my 5 year old granddaughter loved it - they do have a lot of touching animals interaction for children

You can't beat the price. For the price, it was worth it. Go when the weather is nice so you can enjoy hanging around Pier 39.

Great experience with my godson who is 9. All the employees were knowledgeable, and very friendly and helpful.
The petting pools were a great hit, and he loved the hands on experience....he talked about it all the way home..

I have to confess, I am Aquarium spoiled. Atlanta, New Orleans, Long Beach- all first rate experiences. This just felt, well, a little inferior. Old. Dated. Tired. Dark.
But I LOVE the Aquarium, and I want more people to visit, so I feel...continued

I took my grandson and both of us were very happily surprised at how interesting the aquarium was. Very well planned out. Will be attending more often.

It was actually very interesting and quite hands on. The only problem is that we took our 6 year old grandaughter and just as you walk in you see the gift shop to your right. She immediately wanted to go to the gift shop. We told her that she...continued
