We’ll have full run of the aquarium, from the deck where you’ll have a magnificent view of the sun setting into the Bay, to interactive exhibits and games, to encounters with sharks and manta rays. Between food, hanging out, dancing, playing, and exploring, there’s something for everyone. Any and all Jewish teens in grades 8-12 are warmly welcome, membership in BBYO is not required.

Travel Info

South Bay:

  • We’re also offering add-on bus options for some locations at an additional cost of $18. Buses will depart from Congregation Beth David (49 seats) in Saratoga and the Oshman Family JCC in Palo Alto (98 seats) and will fill up quickly, so sign up ASAP to confirm your spot!

East Bay:

  • If you’re coming from the East Bay, we recommend the ferry from Jack London Square in Oakland, which drops you off across from the Aquarium, and will run you $7 for a round-trip ticket (bring cash or your Clipper Card!)

  • Since the Aquarium is centrally located, you may also want to take one of the many available public transit options
