Monterey Bay Aquarium

Monterey Bay Aquarium is a great way to spend a whole afternoon--even though there are a lot of kids there, it's definitely fun for adults too--the one-million-gallon Outer Bay Aquarium houses the largest community of open-ocean species of any aquarium.


The Sunfish is the world’s heaviest bony fish. All head and no tail, ocean sunfish look something like big leathery Frisbees. They scull along by flapping their big top and bottom fins, using their stumpy tails to steer.
