A nature lover’s day trip to California’s redwoods and the Aquarium of the Bay!

Venture north over the Golden Gate Bridge to an isolated canyon filled with ancient coastal redwood trees, also known as Muir Woods National Monument, followed by a trip to the Aquarium of the Bay at Pier 39 to explore the underwater marine life of San Francisco Bay.

Enjoy solitude and peace through the cool, moist air, as you stroll through 1000-year-old trees towering 260 feet tall. Experience the awe and wonder as you are treated to Northern California’s signature fog, while you wander in and out of Mother Nature’s redwood alleyways.

The canopy of coastal redwoods soaring above will stimulate all of your senses as you journey through a piece of ancient California history. You will never forget the crisp, fresh redwood fragrance that will surround you on your journey to the majestic Muir Woods National Monument. Entrance fee into Muir Woods included in the tour.

Lastly, enjoy a scenic drive through the quaint seaside town of Sausalito – a Mediterranean-like village harbored across the San Francisco Bay, famous for its sweeping views, timeless sophistication, local boutiques and cafes. (As an option—extend your time and add on the ferry return.)

Following your visit to California’s famous coastal redwoods, enjoy a visit to the Aquarium of the Bay to experience the local marine life beneath San Francisco. The Aquarium of the Bay at Pier 39 focuses on restoring the local habitat of San Francisco and its marine life. Experience the awe and wonder of the Aquarium’s jellies habitat, featuring moon jellies and Pacific sea nettles. Continuing on, in the crystal aqua tunnel you’ll see a dynamic near-shore habitat that includes swirling schools of anchovies, giant sea bass and colorful sea stars; and explore the deeper waters of San Francisco Bay in the second crystal clear tunnel habitat.

This day trip will surely give you the best experience of San Francisco Bay’s wildlife and marine culture! (Aquarium of the Bay is an open ticket, and can be completed at your own leisure.)
