Monterey Bay Aquarium

Latest visit: February 2017

Spending a few hours at the Monterey Bay Aquarium on a rainy day can be somewhat therapeutic.

It would have been better if hundreds of kids hadn’t been there but I still enjoyed myself more than I thought I was going to. Don’t get me wrong, I think these creatures are beautiful, but after seing a few tanks in a few aquariums, it all starts to look the same wether you are in San Diego, Montreal or Boston.

The adult ticket costs $50 but thanks to the Monterey Jet center, we only paid $35. All you have to do is ask. Dare to, sometimes it’s really worth it!

My three favourite celebrities are the sea nettles/jelly fish, the turtles and the sea horses. There is something very appealing about the Sea Nettle: it looks so soft and gentil yet it is very poisonous. The turtles just look like they are such zen, relaxed animals. Sea horses are so gracious, delicate and elegant.

Here are some pictures of the lovely creatures found at the Monterey Bay Aquarium:
