Aquarium of the Pacific
Located on five acres of waterfront property in downtown Long Beach, the Aquarium of the Pacific opened in June 1998 to rave reviews. The aquarium features marine life of the Pacific Ocean. More than 47 exhibits represent more than 550 species. The aquarium is beautifully designed, with each species displayed according to which part of the Pacific it comes from. The Kids Cove provides a place for children and adults to touch various animals. A visit to this aquarium is a great day out for kids and adults alike.
The staff is too slow at reacting to situations. We witnessed a sea lion spazzing and clearly in pain and trouble and there was no staff in sight. The sea lion continuaously hit the glass and the rocks and when the staff was notified they stated it was a dominance thing until the sea lion stopped moving and just floated around with it's eyes open clearly dead by now. It still went unnoiticed until several audience members pointed it out and even then they were to slow in getting in there. Many people witnessed this and even children. I alwasy liked this place but this clear lack of training makes me question their qualifications for dealing with these animals.
I couldn't have been more disappointed. I guess my expectations were too high but that's pretty normal for $100 for a family of 3. The value was maybe $30. After you walk in to the main room you expect it's just a tease for the main park but quickly you find out that's pretty much all there is. Oh and you can pay extra every way you turn in this tiny little fish tank if you choose to get hooked again. I had a lot more fun walking at the Pike 40 years ago and it was free as was the parking.
i loved everthing and hope to go again with my friends!!! You can learn a lot over there and i love that we get to touch sting-rays, star fish,sharks and more!!!!!! I hope you have a great time there!!!!
It's cool. The exhibits where ur allowed 2 touch the animals were awesome. I also loved the otters. They kept on goin around and around in the water while spinning.
Guess what! Im goin there next Tuesday October 16. I'm goin w/ 49 other kids in my seventh grade bio class. only the best re allowed 2 go.
This is one of the places I have wanted to go to for years. I was not disapointed. It was a great experience, especially the touch tanks with the sting rays and the bamboo sharks. I reccomend it highly
This is the most fantastic aquarium I have ever taken my kids to!! Even better than Disney World's! It was worth the price of admission and if you get a travel magazine there's a coupon where the children can be free. Very child-friendly enviroment and you can easily spend the entire day there.
The perfect thing to do on a bright sunny day is to head to Rancho Los Alamitos for a breath
of fresh air! The admission is free for the green sprawling gardens. Once you park your car, it's best ...
