We stopped in at the Ucluelet aquarium to kill some time. Having been to the Vancouver Aquarium multiple times we were a little hesitant about the small size of this aquarium....well, good things really do come in small packages! This aquarium is catch and release, which is the reason I had wanted to check it out! They have about 15 open "touch tanks" for you to interact with marine life. The BEST part about having a smaller aquarium is that the staff can actually interact with visitors. While looking at some starfish one of the staff memebers came over and immediately started telling us about all of the cool things they can do. He then even went so far as to start taking animals from other tanks and putting them in the starfish tank to show special skills of the starfish and other animals (scallops, clams, etc). It was very cool! Staff members are very knowledgable and accessable. Anytime we had a question about something, it took a matter of seconds to track someone down and learn lots of information! I totally reccommend this aquarium to anyone visitng Ucluelet!!
