Wow, expected way more from an aquarium in CA next to the ocean. Not worth $28 at all! Extremely disappointed. They don't have that many animals and pretty packed on a Saturday... why, idk. I think we went through the whole aquarium in 30min. This aquarium is one notch better than sea life in AZ. Way better places to go than here! !

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.

Having any affinity for aquatic life, I always have a good time when I visit the Aquarium of the Pacific. Don't go expecting it to be the size of SeaWorld San Diego, however. It's an aquarium with many educational exhibits. There are several touch tanks where you can pet jellyfish, sharks, rays, starfish etc. My favorite themed areas are the Lorikeet Forest and the Sea Otter exhibit. For the Lorikeet Forest, guests have the option of paying $3 for a small plastic container (think ketchup/mustard containers at McDonald's) of nectar. Once inside the netted area, Lorikeets fly freely, landing on people with nectar, and also without. I had as many as 3 birds at one time fighitng for the nectar. Beware, these are birds so avoid getting turd on you, unless you're into that sorta stuff. The Sea Otter exhibit was great because just seeing the otters floating on their backs, playing with toys or munching on food, seemed so delightful & peaceful. I'd imagine I can spend quite some time just staring at them. I haven't been to the Cafe so I can't critique it. I usually bring some water and some snacks. For those who want something substantial, Bubba Gump's is across the street and there are plenty of dining establishment on Pine. Highly Recommend!

Spent over a hundred bucks to listen to screaming kids. We went on a Wednesday in the winter and the place was still so packed you could hardly walk. Food was tasteless and way overpriced. Total waste of time and money. Save your money and your eardrums. Don't bother.

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!!

We're members here and really like it. It's a great place to take young kids for the morning. It's just the right size to do in a few hours with a 2 and 4 year old. We stayed a bit longer when with older kids who read all of the stuff. There's a good mix of outdoor and indoor exhibits and activities to see. The lorikeets are awesome and you really don't need to buy the nectar to feed them unless you want them to perch on you. You can get really close without it. The big drawback for me is that they let it get way too crowded. We leave by 1 because it just gets too hard to actually move around and see anything. I'd happily pay slightly higher prices if they lowered the amount of daily tickets they sold to keep it less crowded.

Very nice aquarium. When we visited there were a bit too many kids running and screaming but i guess that's part of the point... I really liked the focus on conservation.

I did like the ability to bypass the line and pick up tickets I already bought on line but it was waaaaay too crowded. I'm surprised they let so many people in at a time. Seemed like a fire hazard. While there was an area for stroller parking it wasn't being utilized as it was very difficult to get around due to the large number of strollers in small areas. the exhibits were nice but the amount of people made it hard to actually see majority of them. There was a nice bird exhibit as well but it was an additional $3. After just paying $29 to barely see the fish I wasnt about to plonk down more money and not see the birds either. I think they need to work on their crowd control to make it more enjoyable for the price tag.

Response from the owner - 5 months ago
Thank you for visiting the Aquarium of the Pacific. The best times to visit are when we open at 9:00 a.m. or after 3:00 p.m. Also, throughout the year, we extend discounted evening hours that offer a quieter experience. In addition, we wanted to clarify that there is not a separate admission fee to enter Lorikeet Forest. The price you saw was the cost to buy a cup of nectar to feed the birds. We apologize you did not enjoy your experience and hope you visit again during a quieter time.
