Loved all the displays, indoor and outdoor. Being able to wander around at your own pace is great. Great location and very clean!

You never get bored of going here! Its a great family day out for all ages.
The shows are very good - especially the dolphins! and there is a wide range of information which makes it both interestig and educational.
The 4D show is one thing you can not miss when going also.
If your in Vancouver - put it on your list!!!

Tip: Food is expensive - so take lunch with you!

It is not your average aquarium as it focuses on regional animals. Many new things can thus be learned. The dolphin show is great, even better than at Seaworld. The mink whale is also cool to watch. It is just tricky to reach as there is limited parking and no free shuttle bus. Taxis on the way back have to pass through some parts of Stanley park, thus increasing the fare.
