We came here with our little one who did enjoy the sealife but for $28 / adult, I expected more. Its pretty much 1 loop where you see the aquarium from the bottom, which was cool. But thats pretty much it. There is another floor...More
This aquarium is what I thought it would be (an aquarium), but my daughters (even teenagers!) really enjoyed it. It kind of took my girls back to when they were little. But, they did ask to go there-I didn’t force it.
We LOVED this aquarium. Yes, it's way smaller than the Shedd in Chicago, etc. but it's perfect for a young kid. There is so much to do in San Francisco, it's nice to have smaller but high quality attractions. The two underwater tunnels were so...More

Packed with family-friendly entertainment, quality hotels, and good food, there’s something for everyone at Fisherman’s Wharf. From street performers and historic cable cars to art galleries and museums, a postcard-worthy photo is available on every corner. Bring your appetite: seafood lovers will be rewarded with Dungeness crab and sourdough bread bowls, while Ghirardelli Square will satiate anyone’s sweet tooth
after a day at Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Don't forget to say hello to the adorable sea lions that make this neighbourhood a true San Francisco treat.
