What you can expect
Our animals are looking forward to welcoming you back. 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 colorful reefs of the Tropical Pacific. Come face-to-face with the ocean’s ultimate predators in Shark Lagoon, hand-feed colorful lorikeet birds, and watch our Magellanic Penguins play. Discover Pacific Visions where you explore underwater realms and future possibilities. The centerpiece, Honda Pacific Visions Theater, features an 8 minute film with multisensory effects. The massive 180-degree curved screen and floor projection disc encompass the viewers’ full range of vision, creating a uniquely immersive experience. The theater experience is included in admission. There’s no better time to visit the Aquarium then now.
Keeping our guests and staff safe is our top priority. We are limiting the number of visitors, requiring advance timed reservations, and managing traffic flow to ensure social distancing, requiring face coverings and temperature checks, providing numerous hand-sanitizing stations, 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, jelly fish, clownfish, and sea turtles or step into the Lorikeet Forest. Colorful 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).
