What you can expect
Take a journey of discovery at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. Discover sunny Southern California and Baja, the frigid waters of the Northern Pacific, and the colourful reefs of the Tropical Pacific. Come face-to-face with the ocean’s ultimate predators in Shark Lagoon, hand-feed colourful lorikeet birds, and watch our Magellanic Penguins play. NOW OPEN - Pacific Visions explore the new stunning glass building to experience a state-of–the-art immersive theatre, interactive art installations, engaging multimedia displays, and live animal exhibits. Explore underwater realms and future possibilities, and help create a new planet right here on Earth. The centrepiece of Pacific Visions, the Honda Pacific Visions Theatre, features multisensory effects to enhance the show, including seat rumblers, wind, fog, and scents. The massive 180-degree curved screen and floor projection disc encompass the viewers’ full range of vision, creating a uniquely immersive experience. There’s no better time to visit the Aquarium then now!
Also included, a 45 min harbour tour with Harbour Breeze. Join us as we explore Long Beach's coastline. You will learn history about the harbour as well as see the beautiful Long Beach skyline, California Sea Lions playing in the harbour, the world-famous Queen Mary, large cargo and container ships from all over the world, and much more!
Your admission to the Aquarium of the Pacific provides you with access to the aquarium's premier exhibits. Begin by heading to Southern California and Baja, where you'll walk through a tunnel with Seals and Sea Lions swimming around you to say hello.
Next, check out Shark Lagoon with more than 150 sharks. See bamboo sharks flicker past in the touch pools or head to the underwater displays where you can fall head over heels for the ocean's top predators.
Cap off your experience with a look at the aquarium's penguins, jam fish, clownfish, and sea turtles or step into the Lorikeet Forest. Colourful lorikeets are waiting for the perfect opportunity to rest on your arm and take a sip of nectar (available for purchase as you enter the exhibit).
