Because, aviously…

The Birch Aquarium is a nice little aquarium at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, overlooking the beach and the Pacific Ocean.

  • Hall of Fishes – Following the currents of the Pacific, this walkthru exhibit has many native Pacific fishes and sea turtles
  • Seahorses – The different varieties of seahorses is amazing, and some of the ones you see there are truly unbelievable
  • Elasmo Beach – Sharks and rays, a lot of which are native to the waters just outside the aquarium
  • Tide Pool Plaza – Full touch tank, with varieties of sharks and crabs. Also has an overlook, where during the migrations you can see the whales swimming by
  • Kelp Tank and Infinity Cube

In the upcoming weeks, I’ll have a lot more from the attractions and sights of San Diego, in the order that I visited them,  and the Birch Aquarium (with its free parking) was a great starting point!
