A giant, upside down globe welcomes all visitors who walk through the Vancouver Aquarium’s expansive entryway. Illuminated and bold, it “represents that blue marble we all live on,” explains Dolf DeJong, Vice President for Conservation and Education.

Combining the aesthetics of a stunning gallery with the passion of a highly effective not-for-profit, the Aquarium is a remarkable master-of-all-trades destination in the heart of Stanley Park. More than one million visitors come to view 50,000 animals every year at the state-of-the-art facility.

    Great Spot to Have Fun and Learn a Few Things Too!

    The Vancouver Aquarium's location can't be beat and neither can the experience they offer. We have been members for the last 4 years and despite dozens of trips we always see something new on every single trip. With a variety of themed areas and literally thousands of sea creatures to see, the Vancouver Aquarium is a great way to while away an afternoon. Make sure you check out the Dolphin show and the shark tank is a great place to watch the sharks and wonder why they don't eat the fish in the tank with them. I also highly recommend the membership option since two visits pays for the membership and then every other visit in that year is basically free. We've been known to go to the aquarium for an hour just because we needed to kill a bit of time...and what a great way to do so! Also of special note are the birthday parties they offer for kids. A great deal, especially for members, and the best part is getting to go behind the scenes with your knowledgeable tour guide. Check out the Vancouver Aquarium and watch the delight in your family's faces.

And as your body slowly rids itself of its inner chill, take a moment to learn about the diversity of this part of the world and the tremendous threats it faces. There’s even information on what you can do to help.
