Helpful Tips

If you are driving there’s parking on the deck of Santa Monica Pier, the first 90 minutes are free. Parking per day is $12-$17.50. If you are using public transportation you may use this website to get to there. If you are using the Hop on Hop off Bus, you must get off at stop 57 from the Yellow route. The Aquarium can be tricky to find—look for it tucked under the eastern end of the Santa Monica Pier bridge along Ocean Front Walk. Follow the colorful seascape murals that cover the outside walls. Take as many pictures too!
