Our pleasant day begins in the morning when we head to the Aquarium of the Pacific. 4th largest of its kind, the Aquarium covers an area of 5 acres and features over 12000 marine life in 500 different species. The Pacific Ocean is the focus of three major permanent galleries, sunny Southern California and Baja, the frigid waters of the Northern Pacific and the colorful reefs of the Tropical Pacific. Walk through the undersea tunnel and enjoy seeing all the marine life, from fierce sharks, to colorful coral reefs and tropical fish, and bizarre jellies, the Aquarium has it all. Then we'll board a boat at noon for a 2.5 hour whale watching cruise. The warm Southern California ocean water lures whales, blue whales, grey whales, humpback whales are seen year round. You may even discover a group of orcas (killer whale)! Our friendly captain will switch off the engine when the boat reaches the waters where whales are spotted, and the world will go quiet. You'll soon be surrounded by nothing but sound of ocean waves and gulls, blue sky and sea. After the cruise, we'll head to the Battleship Iowa. Iowa is the last lead ship of any class of United States battleships and was the only ship of her class to have served in the Atlantic Ocean during World War II. During World War II, she carried President Franklin D. Roosevelt across the Atlantic Algeria, en route to a crucial meeting with Prime Minister Winston Churchill of Britain and Josef Stalin, leader of the Soviet Union. Iowa is known for her supreme fire power, with turrets can carry 2,000 tons of ammunition, and fire projectiles as far away as 24 miles, over the horizon. Our wonderful day trip will end at 5:00pm.
