Welcome to the Unseen Ocean

The Aquarium of the Pacific is home to over 10,000 animals, giving you a glimpse of several different regions in the ocean: the temperate waters of our ocean-backyard, the chilly North Pacific coast, and the warm, colorful tropical ocean.

For our first expedition together: we’re going to follow a cruise!
