Have you seen the amazing wildlife on the bay this season? We’re here to help! We recently upgraded our otter spotter station. A  ”scoreboard” keeps track of all the species seen that day—from sea otters to harbor seals, sea lions, whales and dolphins. Using our high-powered binoculars, it’s not unusual to spot over a dozen species of seabirds in a day! Expert interpreters are there to answer questions and add stories about the animals. It’s all about taking advantage of the Aquarium’s greatest asset—Monterey Bay itself!
