There’s no better time to visit the Aquarium then now!
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).
