Are you looking to Purchase Monterey Bay Aquarium Tickets? Follow a couple of these simple pointers to save yourself some time and stress!
Buying your tickets to one the best aquariums in the world seems rather simple.
Walk up to the entrance, buy your ticket and be on with it. Right? Wrong.
Save yourself some time and agony and don’t take your chances with buying your Monterey Aquarium tickets at the door.
Sounds strange right? Well stranger things have happened.
Peak season is even more disastrous. I once walked by and saw the line literally around the block when a Monterey Aquarium official came out to let everybody know that "the aquarium was sold out". I’m not kidding, SOLD OUT!
So what that meant was that those poor folks had to wait in line until people trickled out of the Monterey Aquarium while standing out in the sun.
And from what I saw, it was a very slow trickle of people leaving the aquarium that day which meant the line was moving very, very slowly.
