Summer at the Aquarium

In Daylight or Twilight—Enjoy Summer at the Aquarium

Evening event at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

Evenings by the Bay

On Saturdays beginning June 30 and running through Labor Day weekend, stay until 8 p.m. and join us for Evenings by the Bay. Dance to live music from local bands and enjoy a special menu of delicious small bites created by Executive Chef Matthew Beaudin, as well as a selection of tasty beverages from a no-host bar.

On Saturday evenings in July, join longtime Aquarium interpreter Steve Johnston for a Naturalist Chat to learn more about the wildlife that calls Monterey Bay home. An avid birder and our resident "whale whisperer," Steve brings years of experience and stories to share.

Under Water Explorers divers

Underwater Explorers

Special member pricing

Come dive with us! In this unique program, we introduce kids ages eight to 13 to the underwater world through surface scuba diving. They will encounter amazing animals and discover the wonders of Monterey Bay while being safely guided by Aquarium dive staff in our Great Tide Pool. No experience is necessary, only a sense of adventure!

We offer four surface dives a day between June 18 and September 3 (except on August 25 and from August 27 to 30). Underwater Explorers is a popular summer program and sells out quickly, so book online now!
