Itinerary:

Southern California and Baja:
Enjoy up-close views of playful seals and sea lions in their indoor/outdoor habitat, and admire reef fish from the Sea of Cortez in a kelp forest.

Northern Pacific:
Feel the temperature drop as you enter this gallery, dedicated to the ice-cold waters of northern Japan, Alaska and Russia. Watch puffins dive for food, be amused by frolicking sea otters, check out a giant Pacific octopus, and take a look at sea stars and Japanese spider crabs.

Tropical Pacific:
Embrace the vacation-like atmosphere of this gallery, where you’ll see brightly colored fish from Micronesia swimming around a coral lagoon with sea horses and sea dragons. The gallery is also home to the aquarium's largest exhibit — the Tropical Reef Habitat — where you can spot sharks and other sea creatures via a glass tunnel and viewing windows.

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. Also, you'll find panels and interactive touch screens that will teach you about the penguins and the issues that are affecting their survival in the wild.

Stroll through this hands-on aviary to admire dozens of Australian lorikeets, whose bright feathers come in various shades of blue, green, yellow and red. If you wish, purchase a cup of sweet nectar to feed the birds, who will perch on your hand, your arm or even your head.
