Shooting on Location at the Aquarium of the Pacific

Home to over 11,000 animals from large sharks to colorful tropical fish, the Aquarium has 50 indoor and outdoor exhibits range from a three-story tall kelp exhibit to a tropical tunnel.

We offer interactive animal opportunities with sharks, sea lions, colorful birds, and even land animals from snakes to spiders. In addition, our location features behind-the-scenes pump and filtration areas that make excellent backdrops for chase scenes, a “mad scientist” area with bubbling vats, a cafeteria and a café setting with an ocean view, 175-person movie theater, a 50-person classroom, and more.
