There are so many places to explore in the world, but you don't have to miss out on seeing them. Just because you're indoors for a while, doesn't mean you can't (virtually) travel. If you've been craving an aquatic vacation, the Monterey Bay Aquarium has live cams for all your relax-ocean needs. Do you want to go exploring under the sea?

Step inside a world of water and wonder.

The sprawling facility holds more than 35,000 animals and plants across 550 different species worldwide!

Ten different live cameras let you explore this vast ocean world up close. Who doesn't want a little ocean therapy every now and then?

Their adorable sea otter camera is sure to keep you entertained.

Although the aquarium is temporarily closed, you can still get an amazing view of sharks, rays, jellyfish, and the cute sea otters floating on their backs.

The cameras offer such clear footage, you just might feel like you're actually there with the animals. 

Good luck picking which live camera you want to tune into first.

Besides the adorable otter cam, some of our other favorites include the live Moon Jellyfish exhibit and the shark cam filled with massive Sevengill sharks, leopard sharks, and spiny dogfish.

Watching these glowing jellyfish float around the tank is oddly hypnotizing, TBH. Did you know that they can reach up to fifteen inches wide?

You can also tune into the soothing kelp forest cam, where sardines and leopard sharks effortlessly glide between their colorful plant-filled playground.

If you're in the mood for some more cuteness, you can also watch adorable penguins waddling around their chilly environment at the Aquarium of the Pacific

As the largest aquarium in California, there is plenty of space to explore. And you can do it all from the comfort of your couch.
