  • 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.

  • Los Angeles: Skip-the-Line Battleship Iowa Museum Ticket

    2. Los Angeles: Skip-the-Line Battleship Iowa Museum Ticket

    Learn about the Battleship of Presidents and see how sailors lived during your visit to the Battleship IOWA Museum. As you walk onboard you'll be greeted on the quarter deck and be given a safety briefing. Appreciate Iowa’s graceful, narrow lifted bow as you look forward up the sloped deck. Stand in front of turret one to get an up-close and personal look at the barrel of a 16-inch 50 caliber Mark 7. Continue a level above the main deck and see inside the captain’s cabin. Learn about president Franklin D. Roosevelt's custom-built bathtub, the first aboard a USN vessel. It was built for his stay on board because of his inability to take showers due to polio. Next, you'll see The 03 level flag bridge. Hear about the history of the ship and how only IOWA’s 03 level conning tower was armored among the four ships of her class. As you move toward the stern on the 05 level you'll get a closer ...

    Great tour and guide, Marty Golden! Learned so much about the ship. Not too strenuous for us 2 (80+) seniors. Many places to sit as we listened to the guide. Stairs not difficult. So much better than touring on our own. Recommend & Would go again!

  • Santa Catalina Island: Nautilus Semi-Submarine Cruise

    3. Santa Catalina Island: Nautilus Semi-Submarine Cruise

    Join the captain and crew and set off on a 45-minute exploratory mission through Lover's Cove, a State Marine Conservation Area sanctuary. Traverse amazing undersea gardens and ocean habitats in a semi-submersible vessel designed after America's first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus, on a trip that is both educational and entertaining. Let your imagination descend into the depths of the ocean as you explore the magic and wonder of undersea life on the Nautilus. Venture into the ocean and through the kelp forest in a state-of-the-art vessel. Learn about what you see with the crew and research team, and let them entertain you with their stories. As you learn and explore, interact with the fish through a specially designed feeding system. Launch fish food torpedoes right from your seat (at an additional cost) and instigate feeding frenzies right outside your personal porthole.

    Such a unique experience. My husband and I travel often and have never done anything like this! They take you to three different spots and you can see the kelp and different fish. Although you do see the same fish and kelp at each spot, it was still pretty awesome to see the fish up that close. I don't foresee myself ever snorkeling or scuba diving, so it was amazing to see the oceanlife. The guide was informative but he was not required to wear a mask, so him coming up to talk to us was a bit unsettling. Also, if you order mobile tickets you are still required to checkin and get your tickets printed. Overall excellent experience and highly recommend if visiting Catalina island!

  • Los Angeles: Go City All-Inclusive Pass with 40+ Attractions

    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.
