About Santa Monica Pier Aquarium in Santa Monica, California

This small aquarium is run by Heal The Bay, an organization that promotes cleaning up our ocean and protecting the animals that live in it. Even though this is one of the smaller aquariums in California, it still contains over 100 species that are considered local to Southern California. Kids will enjoy the touch tanks and hands-on exhibits. The aquarium is located on lively Santa Monica Pier which has amusement rides, restaurants, and other family-friendly businesses. It’s not an expensive attraction to visit as adult prices are nominal and kids 12 and under get in free. Hours are limited, especially in the winter months, so check their website ahead of your trip.
