So easy. Last minute option to see Aquarium of the Pacific when COVID advanced bookings were required, and the aquarium’s site said it was sold out. Actually made entering even easier than if I’d purchased directly through aquarium.

It was really nice and exciting for us to go because my nieces and nephew were excited and everything was clean and organized. Also they would remind us about our safety distancing and much more. Thank you so much for this fun and safe experience for our family.

Took my girlfriend to feed the birds nectar. We thought the birds were already full cause the sign said “Simi Full,” but boy were we wrong. Right out of the bat, my girlfriend and I got bombarded with hungry birds. Took a little getting use to but afterwards the experience enough was easily worth the 4 dollar! My girlfriend can’t stop talking about it. Thank You Aquarium of the Pacific, we will becoming back again!!!!!

When to Get There

The aquarium is open from 9am to 6pm every day of the year. It’s the busiest on weekends and in summer, so if you’re visiting during one of those times, go in the morning to avoid the crowds. On weekdays, school groups often visit until the early afternoon. Check the aquarium’s online calendar for annual events such as Shark Lagoon Nights and a children’s festival.
