My family and I love The Aquarium of the Pacific. It is well-planned, offers many different interactive experiences, and is a place to play and learn for just about all ages. There are many seating areas as you walk through the different "cul-de-sacs" that group the sea life by type and origin, so you can also sit and take a... More

Really in need of major upgrading, improvements, repairs. Today is barely a resemblance of it's past glory.

While researching the cost for tickets to the Aquarium of the Pacific, I discovered a "conventioneers discount" on the aquarium website. The discount indicated half price admission after 2 PM. I stopped by the Aquarium the night before to ensure that this rate was still valid. I was advised that the rate was actually eight dollars and was good any... More

They have improved the Aquarium since we had been there last. The coolest thing that happened was while they were feeding the fish the sardines collected in a ball, they way all the fish moved together was the best thing. I think it is a little pricey for what you get, but we had a 2 for 1 coupon which... More

I love aquariums and this one did not disappoint! Educational, multimedia, sensory exhibits, and a cafe. Would love to go back! My favorite was the seals and sea lions and the live scuba diver feeding the sting rays and other fish! The aquarium grounds were clean and easy to navigate. Worth the trip!

We went with our grandchildren, ages 2 and 4. Their wonder at touching the stingrays, seeing the jellies, and feeding the lorikeets was more than worth the price of admission. We try to visit the Aquarium at least once a year since it is remarkable with changing exhibits. Go and take the whole family.

We went here as a couple. It is a lot of fun to see any and all exhibits here but it is loud...lots of kids so expect yelling. Other than that everything is amazing. You get to see all sorts of fish and marine mammals and as the title states lorikeets, which you get to feed nectar to and they... More

This is a very neat place. You get to see a wide variety of animals, some indoors and some outdoors. You get to interact with several of the sea creatures as well. I recommend it.

I do not have any, but it was an awesome experience to notice all of the interactive learning tools and options. They have several AWESOME touch tanks: Jellyfish, Sharks, Sting-Rays, Starfish, anemone!!! Fun experience for a 24 year old!

Although a tad small, the exhibits are great. Kids will love this place. Don't plan on getting any food here as it is EXTREMELY expensive. The shark tanks are fantastic, especially the outdoor "touch" tank. The 2 indoor touch tanks are also pretty good.
