About time and good riddance. Nothing more than a fish farm with overpriced admission. The grand finale was a joke. Involves the same diver routine bringing an octopus to the glass portal for 30 seconds for all to see. I first saw that routine when I was a kid back in the 70's. Only dif between then and now is the water is muddier.

Went to UVic in early 80's. When my folks dropped me off they asked what one place we should all go to visit. I'd always wanted to go and see the Undersea Garden and asked that we go there. All I remember was it was really really expensive, I was embarrassed to have suggested it and profusely and repeatedly apologized for having wasted a nice chunk of my folk's hard earned money. I think about that every time I go to Victoria. Glad to know I can stop being reminded of it.
