Lots of fun!!

Many wonderful things to see there. Best thing about this place is they rescue!! The seals, dolphins and otters there were all rescued for one reason or another, they aren’t being held captive!! While there we aquadopted an otter that was rescued. Would love to go again!!
Something for Everyone!

The aquarium was phenomenal! My kiddos enjoyed it and we stayed well over 3 hours. Although the movie and exhibit on ocean trash was sad, they learned from it and we all purchased reusable straws that we used the entire vacation. The otters were amazing!

We had a long layover in Vancouver and decided to head to a few places around the city, starting with the aquarium. As tourists, we trusted the reviews and the word of mouth reputation that preceded our choice to visit. Regrettably, were a bit let down by the lack of things to do. The aquarium is much smaller than we anticipated. The otters were the highlight of the trip and fun to watch at feeding time. There are a few small sections with fishes, and a small rainforest (surprisingly, as soon as we stepped inside of the Butterfly exhibit, one of the pink flamingoes ate the very beautiful blue butterfly flying by the entrance). The dominant theme throughout the aquarium was plastic pollution, only to be offset by hundreds of plastic trinkets in the gift shop. Overall, it was a pricey detour (understandably, it's very very costly to feed and care for the animals) and not long lived - we spent approx 60-90 minutes here, incl the 4d movie, and visiting the Otters three times). I give it two stars for the work they are doing with animals that cannot be released to the wild, but the program and facilities seem tired and in need of a overhaul.

This is a small aquarium in a spectacular piece of Vancouver. Lots of outdoor exhibits so it is not a rainy day activity. Certainly not the most impressive aquarium we have seen but it was fun and you got close to the animals in their habitats. Nice food court with healthy food options.

This is a no-brainer! If you're planning on going to the Vancouver Aquarium I highly recommend using the Viator ticket option. It saves you money and goes directly to your email. The aquarium was an easy to manage size and we were able to see everything we wanted in an afternoon. A lovely place to start or end a day in Stanley Park!
