Vancouver Aquarium

With over 7000 species, the Vancouver Aquarium has become a very important addition to the city’s tourism industry. Every year this top attraction features events and exhibits such as beluga whale-whistling and the Amazon rainforest gallery that is home to large fish. Visitors can take photos of the Bunaken coral reef,  piranhas, whales, reef sharks, sea otters and green tree frogs to name a few. See octopus and salmon that are right out of the Pacific Ocean or watch as dolphins dive into the air at the mammal deck. If you are lucky you might be able to catch a sea otter or shark being fed by the aquarium staff. There are many exotic fish to see and kids can enjoy all types of programs and clubs. As you head towards Stanley Park you will see numerous signs that will direct you to the Vancouver Aquarium. There is also a gift shop at the aquarium that will give you a chance to buy souvenirs, t-shirts, stuffed animals and more. If you want to beat the crowds then try to go during the week or early in the day on the weekend. Visit www.vanaqua.org for more information or call 604-659-3474 to speak to customer service.
