Did you know that the Pacific Ocean is the LARGEST ocean in the entire world? How about exploring it! Don't worry, we don't mean actually getting out INTO the ocean - we just mean visiting the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach!
This very large family aquarium has 19 major habitats and 32 exhibits to explore - that will certainly fill your day with ocean fun!
Aquarium of the Pacific has over 11,000 ocean animals on display - and they represent nearly 500 species. Did you even know there were THAT many species in the ocean!? Amazing!
The exhibits cover a range of topics, each one educating the family on something new. Discover The Wonder lets you get closer to the animals than ever before, with new interactive experiences!
It's also a great way to see more of the animal care that goes on behind the scenes, and lets you actually TOUCH horseshoe crabs and bonnethead sharks!
Did you think that 95% of the worlds oceans are still unexplored? At least your family can explore what we DO know in the Ocean Exploration exhibition. You can see how mysterious sea creatures live past where light can reach, and head guest lecturers talk about what they have uncovered.
Want to know when the deepest place in the ocean was discovered, or see live video feeds from deep-sea explorations? This is the exhibition for you!
Shark Lagoon has over 150 sharks (you can touch some of them!) and the Lorikeet Forest lets you meander down a winding path with wonderfully colored lorikeets right above you - and maybe on your head!
With interactive fun and 3D/4D films, you will feel like you have explored the entire ocean by the time you finish at the Aquarium of the Pacific!
