  • It would of course be unfair to compare this to a major aquarium like Monterey Bay or Vancouver, but it is a very worthwhile place to visit. The marine life is all local and , at the end of the season...  more »

  • Good to visit with the kids where they can learn about local marine habitats. There is a tank where you can touch some of the creatures found on our beaches. It is a small aquarium however and somewhat pricey.
  • This is a quaint little aquarium which houses on a few marine animals but is a fun stop. There were three adults and two kids (6 and 4) in our group and we stayed about an hour. We were lucky because we manage to be there during feeding time for the octopus otherwise we probably wouldn't have had more than a half-hour of entertainment. The cost is definitely too high with having to pay $36 for admission. But the kids (and many adults) did seem to really enjoy being able to touch some of the marine life.
  • I was so impressed with my visit today on Labour Day. Friendly and knowledgeable staff who really took time to explain things to me and my kids. There was a great selection of marine life including a shy octopus, crabs of different sizes, and so much more.. What a great way to touch and feel some of the diverse marine life from off the west coast. Deb and the other staff and volunteers were great at sharing their knowledge. Thank you!!

Where to stay in Campbell River

If you choose to stay in Campbell River itself, you'll likely find yourself in a friendly inn or guesthouse overlooking the estuary, where the river meets Discovery Passage. You can get a clearer view of the strait by staying on the coast, on the eastern side of town, where motels look across the water to Yaculta on the other side. Head farther south along Island Highway for even quieter coastal accommodations only a few minutes' drive from the local airport.
