Mark your calendars! The APA's 37th Annual Congress will be returning to Long Beach, California, May 14-18, 2019. After you're done attending Congress-exclusive workshops and the Expo, take a tour of Long Beach's popular Aquarium of the Pacific (100 Aquarium Way).
Home to more than 11,000 animals comprised of nearly 500 different species, the Aquarium of the Pacific lets you explore various habitats of the world's largest ocean. Visitors can explore more than 50 different exhibits, many of them as interactive as they are educational. Touch more than 150 sharks in Shark Lagoon, pet a sea jelly, or feed colorful birds in Lorikeet Forest. Reserve a time to check out penguins, sea lions, and sea otters that you can touch and see up-close. The aquarium offers many other events and encounters for animal lovers, including whale-watching voyages, Harbor Breeze Dolphin Cruises, and Turtle Vision 4-D.
Adult visitors can visit the aquarium after hours during Late Nights with discounted rates and extended hours, or attend Night Dive events for live music, art galleries, and cocktails.
