You'll get closer to animals than ever before at the bamboo shark and cownose ray touch pool, the horseshoe crab touch lab, and tidepool touch lab. The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach celebrates the planet's largest and most diverse body of water: the Pacific Ocean, from the frigid waters of the Northern Pacific to the colorful reefs of the Tropical Pacific.
