Monterey Zoo & Monterey Bay Aquarium

This 11-hour day trip takes students on a sightseeing and fun-filled learning experience to the Monterey Bay Area. The fun includes a tour of animal exhibits at the Monterey Zoo before heading to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Touring the exhibits at the Monterey Zoo, students can get safely close to wild, exotic animals from around the world in a beautiful natural setting. An unforgettable adventure and a truly incredible educational experience!

At the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, students will begin with a 10 minute orientation before setting off into groups to wander and explore the exhibits of jellyfish, tuna, seahorses, rock and coral reef fishes, sharks, sea otters, penguins, kelp forests, and a multitude of other ocean animals on display. The mission of the nonprofit Monterey Bay Aquarium is to inspire conservation of the ocean. The next generation of ocean leaders, students of all ages, will learn so much about a variety of animals and ocean life during each visit.

Monroe Science Educational Services (MSES) enjoys serving the community with an emphasis on bringing "real-world" science topics, processes, and scientific applications to students and families. We offer a variety of indoor and outdoor programs and student/teacher workshops geared towards National and California State Science Standards.
