Explore Aquatic Wildlife in San Francisco

At Reliable Rent-A-Car, we take great pride in our city, which is why we recommend that our car rental customers plan a day trip to San Francisco’s Aquarium of the Bay. People of all ages love spending some time at the Aquarium. Housed in a 50,000- square-foot building, you can spend several hours exploring the water creatures that live in the San Francisco Bay.

Aquarium of the Bay


The San Francisco Bay is home to a diverse range of wildlife and ecosystems. The Aquarium of the Bay celebrates what’s under the water in three main exhibit areas. Each area focuses on a unique aspect of the Bay, from its ecosystem to the creatures that call it home. One area even allows visitors to touch some sharks, rays, and sea stars. Daily, you can also take advantage of several visitor programs that are both fun and educational.


The Aquarium of the Bay is open every day of the year, except for Christmas Day. Hours of operation are seasonal, so be sure to check out the Aquarium of the Bay website for current hours. Tickets cost anywhere from $12 to $20, and you can also purchase family passes. One tip: You can save money on admission by buying your tickets online through the Aquarium’s website!

Getting There

The Aquarium is located off Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, within the city’s walking district. You may decide to park your car rental, explore the Aquarium, and then see what else Fisherman’s Wharf has to offer. Make a day out of it!
