Monterey Bay Aquarium: Live Web Cams, Podcasts, and Videos

The Monterey Bay Aquarium offers live web cams on their website! But that's not all, they also have podcasts (most are less than 5 minutes with two new ones per month) and videos!

Check them out here: Podcast, Videos & Web Cams

Being live web cams, some are more entertaining than others, but they do give the feeding times which, I'd assume, are more livelier events. And they are only live during specific hours, like 7am-5pm PST (depends on the cam).

Web cams include: Kelp, Underwater Kelp, Sea Otter, Aviary, Wading Birds, Penguin, and the Monterey Bay cam (24 hour).

If you select one of the cams, just to the right of the webcam you'll see a link to spotting guides or more information.

Don't forget to check out the podcasts and videos though.
Oh, and one more thing...

Bloodybelly Comb Jelly

They have two "Online Only Exhibits" to check out:
Jellies: Living Art about jelly fish, of course.
Sharks: Myth and Mystery

 I lied. Sorry! There is one more thing: A Games and Interactives page. They have printables, games, posters, colouring pages, and music. All kinds of activities with age and grade ranges provided.

Although, I'm sure you can find even more things to do at the Monterey Bay Aquarium website if you feel like exploring it!

Have fun!

PS. Monterey Bay Aquarium is in California, USA. Too far away for us to visit without a ton of preplanning, lol  ;-)

Science Sunday



  1. Neat resource! I visited a long time ago and it was a great aquarium.

  2. Very cool LWD. In land locked Edmonton (ok, we do have a lovely river), we don't have much for aquariums. My son would love to go to the MBA... maybe some day we'll make it to California. Last year we went to Florida though and had an amazing time.

  3. We are fortunate to live not too far away from the Aquarium. Feeding times are when the animals are most active and the most fun to watch even at the aquarium. It is worth a trip there if you can ever make it! I will have to check out the website. I have used it before, but sort of forget what a great resource it is.

  4. Thanks for stopping by Lori! Your aquarium looks fantastic and I'm glad to re-acquaint you with their website, it really is a lovely resource with something for everyone.

    I think I found it while searching for live webcams, lol.
