Mirror, mirror, on the ice...who's the fairest "otter" them all? Brook, of course! Our trusty husbandry volunteer Hugh reminisces about Brook's first time seeing her own reflection: http://ow.ly/RsYiY

Aquarium of the Pacific is conveniently located right off of Shoreline Drive in Long Beach. The building itself takes the shapes of the waves and sea in the architecture. Once you enter, the main hall greets you with entrances to the various exhibit areas and a 3-story window view into the Blue Cavern. In the morning, divers clean the glass and rocks inside the exhibits as the groupers and other fish curiously swim around them. * Travel tip for the kids: The Aquarium guide book has a scavenger hunt in it. In each gallery and exhibit, the kids can collect stamps. It's a great educational souvenir. Jellies are fascinating and they have their own experience at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Moon Jellies are a favorite. You can even touch these in a special touch pool inside the exhibit. Other jellies you might see are Umbrella Jelly, Japanese Sea Nettle, Unside-down Jelly, Comb Jelly, Purple-striped Jelly, Lagoon Jelly, Pacific Sea Nettle, Indonesian Sea Nettle, and Flower Hat Jelly. Southern California / Baja Gallery has 18 exhibits featuring animals ranging from Oregon to Mexico. Sea lions and seals can be seen both below and above water, swimming and playing. One of the younger sea lions can actually see through the underwater plexiglass and will come up to the glass to check you out. The Ray Touch Pool is available for adults and children alike. Using the two-finger touch method, you can touch rays and small sharks in these shallow pools. They feel like slimy velvet. Shorebird Sanctuary has a few wetland birds like Black-necked Stilts, Black-bellied Plovers, Western Snowy Plovers, Killdeer, and Ruddy Ducks. A new exhibit is the Southern California Steelhead Story. The Southern California Steelhead is part of the salmon family and reproduces in Southern California streams. Just like other salmon, they travel up and down the local rivers to spawn and return to the ocean. In 1997, this fish was listed on the endangered species list. The Southern California Steelhead is also an indicator fish, meaning that their survival depends on a healthy ecosystem. The exhibit shows the growth process of the steelhead and how we can help to maintain a healthy ecosystem for all of us. June Keyes Penguin Habitat is outside near the Shorebird Sanctuary. The penguins love to play and a few of them will swim right up to you along the glass and pose for some awesome photos. Northern Pacific Gallery explores the habitats found in Alaska, Siberia, the Bering Strait, and the Aleutian Islands. You can view more jellies along with puffins, and a touch pool with starfish, sea anemones, and sea urchins. If you time it just right, you can watch the trainers work with the sea otters. Some of it is playing but a lot of it has meaning behind it, like checking eye health and general health examinations. They are so cute and playful. After the trainers left, they were all rolling around and crunching on ice piles inside the enclosure. The Tropical Pacific Gallery is home to over a thousand colorful fish and sea turtles. If you happen upon the Mandarin Fish, it will take a liking to your camera lens and pose for you. There is also an observation tube that passes through the Aquarium's large 350,000 gallon tank. You can see sharks, sea turtles, and the underbelly of large rays as they swim over you. Iridescent anemones that look like night lights set the exhibit aglow along with more jellies whirling around in circles.

Went to an outside concert at the Aquarium last night. Jet Set Quintet played and were fantastic. The venue is an outdoor balcony/patio space and has a beautiful view of the harbor lights. They serve drinks and some food options. The band had really high-end musicians. It was a very nice evening and I highly recommend it.

Aquarium of the Pacific Is great when you have the right COUPON!! I got an awesome coupon recently from a site called CitySavver that saved me 40% off my admissions. I've waited to go here for a long time and haven't had the chance. This place has everything you can imagine when it comes to sea living creatures. From flashlight fish to electric eels to sharks you can pet if you can name it they got it. My kids loved this place too they were so busy steering in the tanks and we got to take Great pics!!

The Aquarium of the Pacific was awesome! Unlike other aquariums, everyone treated the animals with respect. The trainers didn't force the animals to do things they didn't like, which is something you don't see when you go to other aquariums. The aquarium was a little crowded (but isn't every place like that?). To me, if an area is crowded, it's a good sign. The people actually enjoyed their trip to the aquarium, proving that the aquarium didn't "rip you off". The children in the aquarium were not noisy at all, I actually got to talk to a few of the children and most were eager to learn about the marine life. Keep in mind that these children will someday change our world, and this aquarium is perfect for them to embrace their curiosity and learn facts that they normally wouldn't know, while having loads of fun! Everyone at the aquarium is friendly and eager to help you out. Every time I go to the aquarium, it creates a lasting memory for me and I get to learn something new all the time! So I would recommend this to all my friends, family members, coworkers, etc. You won't be disappointed! :)

I waited to give my review of the Aquarium of the Pacific until after I visited Monterey Bay Aquarium...Long Beach is awesome. Sorry Monterey Bay, there was no comparison. This place is clean, you are allowed to touch way more slimy watery creatures. Monterey has the jellies, Long Beach has everything else. Easy parking, great people, great looking animals, room to walk. I choose local.

I've visited the Aquarium of the Pacific multiple times over the years and I've always been impressed with it. I know that this isn't SeaWorld sized, but you could easily spend a few hours reading all the information and watching the amazing sea life up close and personal. Most of the kids love to shove their hands in the pool and do the two finger touch on the sharks and sting rays. My favorites thing to do is just watch the sea otters, the penguins, and all the fantastic jelly fish.
