We loved the idea of Collect & Release - how great is that for not only us but the creatures and the environment? The staff were patient, knowledgable and happy. The exhibits were superb the best we've ever experienced and this is growing up with the former Vancouver Aquarium. Knowing all of these wonderful sea creatures are only there for a visit made me feel really good about the direction Ucluelet has taken. Keep up the good work. The reality is, the only reason why we visited this particular day was that following a storm the night before, all the trails and beaches were closed so it was pure serendipity we chose to visit the aquarium.

With its constant flow of fresh sea water and marine life from the area (all returned to sea once a year and replenished) we found this a very interesting and informative pit stop. Doesn’t take long (half an hour or so) and the staff and volunteers know their stuff. Well worth visiting.

All kinds of descriptive material and photos at each tank to describe what it held. Well worth the visit.

Great diversity of small ocean creatures that are not normally a focus for other aquaria, everything well labelled and looking natural and healthy. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable. A very informative way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy day

We appreciated the staff, enjoyed the displays, appreciated the catch-and-release model, bought gifts at the shop. I would like to see a bit more conservation and ecology signage. What are the roles of the creatures in the ecosystems? What do they need to thrive? What about human impacts? What can people do? It's big enough that there's lots to see, and small enough for a 1 hour visit and so that it's not overwhelming. The temperate oceans off the west coast have so much diversity that we don't hear about.
