Aquarium of the Pacific: Seals, Sharks, Otters and More

More than just fish, the Aquarium of the Pacific displays a wide variety of sea life from coral reefs to the Redondo Beach drop off. There are many activities, such as movies, watching a seal show, observing otters play, and feeding birds and rays.

A full scale replica of a blue whale hanging from the ceiling greets visitors when they enter the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. The aquarium contains a two story-building, movie theater and large outside area. In the foyer, a large coral reef tank features the colorful friends kids will recognize from the movie Finding Nemo. An enormous aquarium taking up the far wall displays a kelp forest microcosm where an array of fish in all colors and sizes swim among the rocks. Several times throughout the day, divers enter the tank to clean or feed the fish. Occasionally, the lights in the foyer dim and a movie plays on the walls and ceiling, making visitors feel like they are immersed in the ocean or the North Pole.

The aquarium is divided into themed areas devoted to watery locals in the Pacific Ocean. Large windows open onto separate aquariums where a variety of fish and funky things like sea dragons, jellyfish, and giant crabs are on display. Visitors often crowd the viewing areas, but smaller kids can sneak through to the glass. Some exhibits demonstrate just how much our local sea life has disappeared over the last few decades. There's also a large otter exhibit that shows the creatures frolicking and eating both above and below water level. Guests can also choose between two ocean themed movies, at an additional cost.

The fun continues outside with a shark tank, aviary, seal show, play area, and new penguin habitat. In the shallow shark tank, visitors can pet smaller sharks and rays and feed the rays for a fee. Although it looks slimy, their skin feels surprisingly soft. Look down on larger sharks in the main tank or view them at eye level downstairs as they swim in circles and give you a look that makes you feel like a juicy seal. In the aviary, guests can feed tropical birds nectar from a paper cup for a fee. Go early because the birds often become stuffed and turn up their beaks at the sweet stuff. Visitors can also watch trainers put seals through their paces. There's also a petting station for sea stars and other critters, but the line is often long. Despite all the exciting ocean life, my kids' favorite activity was the outdoor water play area. They had a blast climbing plastic ocean animals and shooting water at each other.

Snack options abound: a coffee shop in the foyer, a snack bar outside, and a cafeteria on the second floor, which offers a few booths overlooking the outside area. A few restaurants are located outside the aquarium as well. There is plenty of parking in the adjacent garage for a fee.
