Aquarium of the Pacific

Exciting Huntington Beach Activities

Experience the wonder of one of the world’s largest aquariums. This expansive venue is home to more than 12,500 creatures, representing the three areas of the Pacific - sunny Southern California and Baja, the frigid waters of the North Pacific, and the colorful reefs of the Tropical Pacific.  Come face to face with over 500 species, including 150 sharks (some you can touch, some you can't) sea horses, sea lions, moray eels, moon jellies, even tropical birds in the Lorikeet Forest.

The Aquarium of the Pacific is open daily (with the exception of Christmas Day and the Long Beach Grand Prix, call for dates, annual event in April).

Guests planning to visit the Queen Mary and the Aquarium in the same day can purchase a combined ticket package at either location.
