  • We visited from California, and it was raining, so we chose this as an indoor activity. It's just beautiful and the fish, jellyfish, turtles, frogs are all well kept. we loved it!

  • I would give this place a few extra stars if I could! This place provides fun-filled leisure and features animal rescue and care facilities. It is perfect for any child interested in marine life and having a turtle-y great time (I know, pathetic)! We went on a Saturday and were positively delighted to see children smitten by the magic of the place! In most of the tanks, the water is mirror smooth and has species of such beauty darting across. We enjoyed watching the playful antics of the sea otters. I had absolutely no idea that there are so many varieties of sea anemone species that run almost the full spectrum of colors, from subdued greens to fluorescent pinks! Some of them looked like petals waving in the breeze. There are a number of activities aimed at educating and entertaining visitors in a fun and engaging manner. The cherry on top of the cake? I was given a free slushie!
  • Fun! Buy your tickets ahead of time to avoid lines. Lot of different areas to explore and learn. The outdoor part with seals, etc was very different from the Aquarium in Toronto which was very nice! It has a good variety of species. Too many frogs for my liking … lol but it was great! Staff was nice and there was a person by the map to explain things. 4D movie was good too. Will definitely come back if I go to Vancouver again.
