Before the Doors Open
Aquarist JJ prepares the Breakwater exhibit.

There is a lot of work that goes on before the doors open to the public each morning at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Hours before opening the staff is already hard at work getting the Aquarium ready for another day of welcoming guests to the world of the Pacific Ocean. Touch tanks and other guest areas are prepared. Viewing glass to the exhibits are cleaned. Divers clean the watery realms of the aquarium. Otters and other hungry critters get their first meals of the day. A lot of hard work is done by dozens of dedicated staff before the first visitor enter the Great Hall and the rest of the Aquarium.

Check out the time-lapse video of some of the pre-opening work that is done to make sure our guests have a wonderful experience at the Aquarium of the Pacific.
