  • An amazing experience seeing a lot of marine animals. They have so many different types of jellyfish there, which we probably didn't know exist. The sea otters were exceptionally cute and friendly...  more »

  • We participated in the Aquarium's re-opening day to try out their new, safe, socially distanced experience. As regular Aquarium guests, we weren't sure what to expect, but the one-way flow helped...  more »

  • This place is perfect for kids and adults. There are lots of different species of marine life to look at and to learn. The overall layout is very spacious. Since it's located inside Stanley park, there are lots of parking. We're here from 1pm to 5pm and still have some places that we didn't get to check out yet. Good thing we have 2 years membership so we can come back anytime. Highly recommend!
  • This is one of the best places to go in Vancouver! A day trip to here and science world is an unforgettable experience. Fun for all ages - fun for the whole family! They host events with everything from birthday parties to weddings. So much to see! They do make you leave through the gift shop which kind of feels like a trap. There's so many different exhibits that it's hard to pick a favourite. Highly recommended to anyone, at any time, for any reason!
  • Absolutely loved my time at the Vancouver Aquarium. The exhibits were numerous and informative. But most of all, the staff there is amazing. Incredibly helpful and educational, the programming there was entertaining while teaching the audience about animal husbandry and ocean conservation. My only wish is that we got there early to spend more time before it closed. We will surely be visiting the Vancouver Aquarium again the next time we're in the area.
  • Wonderful place to spend the morning out and about with kids. The mix of indoor and outdoor exhibits, along with a rotating gallery keeps things fresh. Additionally there are activities for kids including story time, crafts, and shows. It is easy enough to get to the aquarium on public transportation, but if you prefer to drive there is sufficient parking as well. The cleaning staff are very attentive, and the place is spotless considering it allows food and drinks to be consumed throughout.
  • The Vancouver aquarium is one of the important place to visit. It has huge number of different marine life species to look at. This is a great place to bring kids. They have maintained the aquarium properly. Will definitely recommend to all of my friends and others to visit here. There is also a very huge parking area adjacent to the aquarium.
