In April, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, in Monterey, Calif., became the newest addition to the San Francisco CityPass program. Travelers taking part in the program will now have the choice between visiting the Aquarium of the Bay at Pier 39 on San Francisco’s Embarcadero waterfront, and heading to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, located two hours by car south of San Francisco.
“Our research reveals that a high number of San Francisco CityPass buyers visit both San Francisco and Monterey during their trips to California,” said Mike Gallagher, CityPass co-founder. “So, it made sense to add a truly outstanding Monterey attraction. Now travelers can enjoy an aquarium experience whether they plan to stay in the city for their full vacation or explore more of the state by zipping down 101 to Monterey or by taking the more scenic coastal route on Highway 1.”
Each San Francisco CityPass booklet covers prepaid admission to the California Academy of Sciences, a Blue and Gold Fleet Bay Cruise, a choice between the de Young Museum and Legion of Honor and the Exploratorium and, now, a choice between the Aquarium of the Bay and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The pass costs $84 for adults and $59 for kids ages 5-11 and is valid for nine consecutive days.
