Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre

The Vancouver Aquarium—Stanley Park's biggest tourist attraction—is home to more than 50,000 creatures including sharks, dolphins, penguins and otters, making it an ideal destination for families in the city. Canada's largest aquarium, the site is well-known for its research, marine stewardship and emphasis on learning, with exhibits such as the Pacific Canada Pavilion showcasing the region's bountiful marine life.

Both adults and children will enjoy the encounters program, which takes visitors behind the scenes with the aquarium's trainers. You can feed and help train the animals while learning about their lifestyles and habitats. In addition to the various shows that run every hour, travelers can wander to see beluga whales whistle in the icy Arctic Canada exhibit; check out the iridescent jellyfish tank; and catch the hourly rainstorm in the Amazon gallery, home to sloths, poison tree frogs and piranhas.

Practical Info

The Vancouver Aquarium is located on the southeastern end of Stanley Park, meaning the surrounding area is just as beautiful as what's inside. It is easily accessible via public transportation and the park shuttle. For those who wish to drive, there is plenty of paid parking. Nearby attractions include the totem poles at Brockton Point, the Seawall Promenade and the West End neighborhood's many restaurants.
