Aquarium of the Bay Theater, PIER 39,
Pelican Dreams is about wildness: How close can we get to a wild creature without taming or harming it? Why do we need wildness in our lives, and how can we protect it? Meet “Gigi,” a starving young bird who stopped traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge, and “Morro,” an injured pelican who makes friends with a duck. You will never look at “flying dinosaurs” the same way again.
When & Where
Aquarium of the Bay
At Aquarium of the Bay, we focus on water, beginning at the heart—the very depths—of San Francisco Bay. Located on San Francisco’s iconic waterfront, Aquarium of the Bay provides unforgettable encounters with local marine life that inspire both wonder and conservation and leave a lasting impact with guests.
Our facility showcases 300 feet of crystal clear acrylic tunnels holding 700,000 gallons of carefully maintained Bay water that sustains approximately 30,000 animals, from octopuses to eight-foot native, sevengill sharks. Visitors are also treated to mesmerizing walls of jellies and a chance to touch bat rays, skates and “splash zone" animals.
Aquarium of the Bay is a division of bay.org, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to protect, restore and inspire the conservation of San Francisco Bay and its watershed, from the Sierra to the sea.
