Had a great time with my daughter at Aquarium of the Pacific. We almost missed going due to reservation requirements, but found earlier last minute reservation times on Viator, called the aquarium to verify that they were a valid vendor, confirmed, and we were in! Yes, that easy. Recommend for sure.

How to Get There

When to Get There

The aquarium is open from 9am to 6pm every day of the year. It’s the busiest on weekends and in summer, so if you’re visiting during one of those times, go in the morning to avoid the crowds. On weekdays, school groups often visit until the early afternoon. Check the aquarium’s online calendar for annual events such as Shark Lagoon Nights and a children’s festival.

For additional fees, you can take a behind-the-scenes tour (guests must be at least 7 years old), participate in an animal encounter with penguins or sea lions, or even head out to sea on a dolphin- and whale-watching cruise.
