More Information



Take a journey of discovery through the world’s largest ocean at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California. Explore the exhibits, and discover sunny Southern California and Baja, the frigid waters of the North Pacific, and the colorful reefs of the Tropical Pacific.

Check out the BP Sea Otter Habitat modeled after their natural habitat and discover the Molina Animal Care Center, where you can see how the animals are cared for and witness medical procedures as they are performed.

Get up-close with more than a dozen Magellanic penguins both above and below the water in the new June Keyes Penguin Habitat. The exhibit is home to the first penguins in the Aquarium’s collection and includes a crawl-in space, allowing you to feel as if you are in the exhibit with the animals.  The exhibit features a rocky area and beach that resembles the penguins’ natural habitat, a pool for swimming, and nesting areas. Life-sized models of penguins representing other species are also on display in the exhibit area.  

The Aquarium of the Pacific … where the ocean and humans connect.
