  • Love this place! The interpreters all know their marine biology and ecology! So friendly and an absolutely delightful crew! Fantastic specimens from the discovery passage and even involve the public in collecting samples.
  • My son has a passion for marine life and we spent a good hour here talking t the staff and learning about marine animals in the nearby ocean. I only wish we lived closer so we can visit more often. Thanks for the great educational n opportunities:)
  • This is a very small building, but full of interesting displays. They recently added an octopus and had a naming contest. The winner was Calypso, but I prefer one of the honourable mentions, Octopus Prime :-). The co-ordinates to their parking lot, for a GPS or map program are: 50.02054 N, 125.23691 W (Decimal), --or-- 50° 1' 13.94" N 125° 14' 12.88" W (Degrees, Minutes, Seconds )
  • Small but full of fun. The touch tanks are great and staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
  • Was fun nice to see some of the sea life in our ocean up close staff was friendly
