A major tourist attraction and aquatic adventure. An ocean wise initiative- it is also a marine research, conservation and marine animal rehabilitation centre. Check out the beautiful wildlife, aquatic animals and more.
The Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise® initiative, is home to thousands of incredible ocean species and amazing aquatic life. It’s also Ocean Wise headquarters, where our scientists, educators and conservation experts do their work, not only to protect our oceans but to inspire others to join us in…
Beautiful ocean wise collection. Very conscious of well being of creatures. No shows like Sea World - lots of biologists to do behaviour discussions but these animals are not treated like circus animals. No large whales. A wonderful establishment that local residents are proud of and support…
If you feel like doing things indoors because the rain won’t stop, check out the Vancouver Aquarium that is located right in Stanley Park.

“The center of Queen Elizabeth Park, Little Mountain, marks the highest point in Vancouver and its elevated position affords excellent views of the city center and the mountains to the north. Park recreational offerings include pitch-and-putt golf, tennis, disc golf, dining (at Seasons in the Park Restaurant), an extensive outdoor arboretum, and the lovely enclosed tropical environment of Bloedel Conservatory. The sunken Quarry Garden makes a lovely spot to stroll on a warm summer day.”
