  • Aquarium of the Pacific: Skip-the-Ticket-Line Admission

    1. Aquarium of the Pacific: Skip-the-Ticket-Line Admission

    Take a journey of discovery at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. Discover sunny Southern California and Baja, the frigid waters of the Northern Pacific, and the colorful reefs of the Tropical Pacific. Come face-to-face with the ocean’s ultimate predators in Shark Lagoon, hand-feed colorful lorikeet birds, and watch the Magellanic penguins. Discover Pacific Visions where you explore underwater realms and future possibilities. The centerpiece, Honda Pacific Visions Theater, features an 8-minute film with multisensory effects. The massive 180-degree curved screen and floor projection disc encompass the viewers’ full range of vision, creating a uniquely immersive experience. The theater experience is included in admission.

    Good and it was really interesting that you can actually colour fishes or sharks and it appears on the screen and people will be able to see your art work and I really liked the theatre when we got to see a amazing presentation and I really loved all the fishes and shark and everything else.

  • Newport Beach: 2-Hour Whale Watching Tour

    2. Newport Beach: 2-Hour Whale Watching Tour

    On these year-round cruises off Newport Beach, many whale varieties are regularly seen including the giant blue whale (summer and fall), finback whale, grey whale (winter and spring), minke whale, and humpback whale. Several types of dolphin, seals, and all sorts of other marine life are typically spotted on the excursions as well. The cruises depart from Newport Harbor, located in the heart of Orange County, which is just a short drive from both Los Angeles and San Diego. Each cruise is a unique experience as you may never know what you might encounter. A recent cruise encountered a pod of more than 30 killer whales, including adults and their young, making for a whale watching adventure of a lifetime. The cruises enjoy a 96 percent success rate viewing whales and/or dolphin.

Cruises typically see a variety of whales including giant blue whales (during the summer and fall), finback whales, grey whales (in the winter and spring), minke whales, and humpback whales, as well as several types of dolphin, seals, and all sorts of other marine life. Each cruise is a unique experience in that you never know what you might encounter. The Laguna Beach coastline lies just to the south of Newport Harbor and is some of Southern California’s most beautiful coast. The grey whales are commonly seen in this area. Most whale watching cruises take in the scenic backdrops of Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, and Newport Beach, while viewing the gentle giants just a few hundred yards from shore. Due to the geography of the Orange County coastline that surrounds Newport Harbo...

    We didn't get to see any whales, but the Captain made a huge effort to follow some common dolphins and we caught up to a very large pod feeding. Was amazing!

    I advise people who want to visit L.A to buy this pass. To save time and money. Each can schedule in terms of points of his own interest. The 7 days is better. For more Attractions. Then using it within 2 weeks, which gives to the visitor more time to do a break and doing other personal things. The bad point, the guide does, t tell you how to get there. It would be more helpful if we know where the attraction is. The best way to gather all which are in the same area.
