Advice for Monterey Aquarium

Hi all,

We have an unexpected opportunity to spend a free night in Monterey with free passes to the Aquarium so we are going to drive from Berkeley Saturday morning and come back sometime Sunday. Currently, I'm thinking of going to the Aquarium around 3 pm Saturday and back at 10 am Sunday. We usually go in the winter to avoid traffic and crowds and would like to minimize both (ok, everyone can laugh here) but maximize our time. We are also thinking of pushing ourselves to arrive at Point Lobos at 8 Sunday morning and take an hour's walk around the sea before going on to coffee and Aquarium.

Thoughts? and thanks in advance.

That sounds kind of ideal. I went a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday, and it was super crowded and annoying until later in the afternoon. The only thing you might miss is the 10am feedings on Sunday. But Point Lobos is a fair alternative.

Don't miss the fish feeding. You may have to adjust your timing.

Thanks AJ and Doug. We are now our standard hour behind in leaving our home in SF Bay area.

The Plan is just for an hour's walk along Point Lobos (foot injury), but now has been extended to maybe include sunset picnic on the ocean just above Asilomar.
