One might bypass this little gem of an aquarium. It was amazing to see the variety of wildlife obtained within a 2 km radius. It's small in size but we spent over an hour watching the sea creatures move around - and we didn't have children with us! The staff was very helpful and were excited about answering our quesions. We wished we had visited the aquarium earlier in our trip as we may have noticed more creatures in the small tide pools. Not only is this a change of pace from the other activities, but it's very interesting.

It was a little expensive considering the place is small, but the quality of the exhibits is very good and there are touch tanks which are great for kids to experience and learn about sealife.

Definitely worth a visit during a trip to Ucluelet. The exhibits were informative and well done. Small scale. Great exhibits!

We totally LOVED this "catch and release" aquarium! Most things you could actually touch and feel, it was so educational and amazing. Don't leave Ucluelet without visiting this aquarium! We will definetly go back!

Great for kids, excellent hands on tanks. Might seem a bit pricey for the family but for a good cause, adn they have to fund themselves. The only aquarium around that returns everything to the wild. Very high quality and control. Recommended
