Enjoy private hours visiting our outdoor space, which is limited to 150 to 250 people. These special evening hours are available Monday to Thursday from 6 pm to 8:30 pm. Guests will be allowed to enter and travel through the Aquarium in groups of six and all safety protocols must be followed. Food and beverage will be available for purchase. Private hours at the Aquarium are great for end of the year entertainment while allowing social distancing in a safe outdoor environment.

The Aquarium of the Pacific will be open with outdoor exhibits only. Those exhibits include the Harbor Terrace (featuring the Moon Jelly Touch Lab and archerfish and mudskipper exhibits), Shark Lagoon (including touch pools), Lorikeet Forest, the Our Water Future exhibit, Southern California Steelhead Story, Molina Animal Care Center, June Keyes Penguin Habitat, the Ray Touch Pool (open for touch), and the Seals and Sea Lions Habitat. The outdoor gift store will be open. Indoor areas are temporarily closed.

Keeping our guests and staff safe is our top priority. The Aquarium is limiting the number of visitors, requiring advance timed reservations, managing traffic flow to ensure social distancing, requiring face coverings for everyone age 2 and older and temperature checks for everyone, providing numerous hand-sanitizing stations, sanitizing surfaces constantly, and much more. Please visit our Aquarium Safety page for full details before visiting. Reservations must be made at least one week in advance and are subject to availability. This offer is only available to groups of 150-250 people. Call (562) 951-1630 to book now!
