Adults at the Aquarium

Fun isn’t just for kids at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Fun isn’t just for kids at the Aquarium of the Pacific. There is always something new to see and learn for all ages. And all year long there are a variety of programs and evening events specifically for adults.

The best times to visit for a more peaceful experience are when we open or after 3:00 p.m. Come see what’s new and don’t forget to meet our penguins, sharks, and sea otters. Your admission fee helps us to feed our animals and supports our education and conservation programs. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Convenient parking is available for $8.
