Penguin Grotto
Newsom was the first penguin to explore the grotto.

Hugh's Aquarium Views Video Number 26

The penguin grotto (it’s what I call the penguin under-look area) at the Aquarium of the Pacific is one of those must-experience gems for guests. The transparent roof and spongy, comfy flooring make it an ideal place to cozy close to the penguins as they swim next to and over you. It’s one of my “Happy Places” to spend my free time at the Aquarium. Even the penguins themselves love experiencing it.

Newsom was the first penguin to explore the grotto. Now it’s sort of a rite of passage for young penguins at the Aquarium to investigate the cave. Recently youngsters Astaire and Fisher took in the surroundings of the cave and found it fascinating. Check out the video and also check out the grotto on your next visit.
