Missing the Ocean? Here's One Free Way to Fix That

Say hello to sea otters, penguins, and jellyfish!

(SPOT.ph) There’s no denying that the Philippines is blessed with countless picturesque beaches. But with the enhanced community quarantine still in place, feeling the fine sand under our feet and admiring majestic sunsets in person just need to be put on pause for now. The good news is you can still experience the wonder of the ocean from the comfort of your couch: Monterey Bay Aquarium in the U.S. virtually lets you visit their adorable resident animals through live cams on its official YouTube channel and website.

Located at the ocean’s edge on Cannery Row in California, Monterey Bay Aquarium is dedicated to inspire marine conservation. If the name Monterey Bay Aquarium rings a bell, that’s because it served as the inspiration for Pixar’s Finding Dory

Ready to "visit" Monterey Bay? Here are some videos worth checking out:

Live Cams

You can get a sense of calm and clarity by tuning in to different webcams that showcase not just colorful corals, but also moon jellies, penguins, and sea otters. Want to take a break from the water? Let time fly by watching various species of birds via the aviary cam.

Morning MeditOceans

If you’re hoping to take a breather to wash your worries away, start your day with a guided meditation. Who knows, maybe the relaxing music and soothing sights are just what you need to heal your weary soul.

Live Remote Chats

Boost your marine knowledge by participating in the live-remote chats with aquarium staff. Discussions can range from animal care during the temporary closure to experiences while working at the aquarium.
