This is a small but very well run aquarium sitting inside the boundaries of Stanley Park. Great for kids!

We went on an overnight visit to the aquarium this past weekend. It was a blast! The aquarium is clean, with well-maintained exhibits. The animals are healthy and appear happy. The people who work here are very knowledgeable, and obviously care about the animals. This aquarium is not only for display, they are also heavily involved in marine research, rehabilitation, and conservation efforts. The exhibits are great for all ages, and they have many interactive displays intermingled throughout the facilities to keep even the youngest children engaged. At this time there is some construction going on, as there is a quite large addition being added. Can't wait to see this! I would also recommend the overnight experience. It's not cheap, but is a great experience, especially if you have an animal lover in your household! We got to sleep right in front of the beluga windows.

We moved from the east coast and I have seen many aquariums. This one is my new favorite. We were sad that it was too cold for the warm weather penguins but the other animal shows made up for it. It was awesome to see the different dolphins, beluga whales, and sea otters.

Situated in Stanley Park this is a wonderful place for kids - the exhibits are all accessible by the vertically challenged and they can get very close to all the action. There are shows throughout the day but the highlight for us was the tropical area, suitably hot and humid on a cold Vancouver day with lots of marine life and birds to observe. Great day out.

來Stanley park別忘了進來這豐富的水族館,裡頭有很多海洋生物,還可以看到海獅,水獺跟海豚等的表演。讓我們這種老大人重新認識許多海洋生物,了解其中的差異,很棒的學習經驗。
