We had a great experience at the Vancouver aquarium. There were so many animals you could see, and the shows were very entertaining. Definitely recommended!

We went here during our visit to Stanley Park. The cost was $39 for adults; $22 for our pre-teen. There are a wide variety of exhibits, the staff are knowledgeable and friendly, and they have sporadic talks and 4D showings (although we did not take advantage of the latter.

There is a sit down cafe that serves coffee, wine, beer, juices and disposable water bottles that you can fill up at the water fountain - this is for environmental reasons.

Overall, we very much enjoyed our experience. At one point, the trainer brought out two penguins in an open public area to socialize them - very neat seeing these beautiful creatures up close. There was one area that had some tropical birds.

More than just sea life at this aquarium. It was time well spent. Kid friendly. Too bad there wasn’t any areas to touch sea life.

This is my first time visiting Vancouver Aquarium, and I have to say its a great place to visit for an entire family.

The jellyfish exhibits were excellent, the dolphin show was entertaining, and the petting of the sting rays were a great experience.

The entire facility is top notch and highly recommended as a must place to visit.

One of the must see attraction while you are visiting vancouver. They have maintained and preserved an amazing line of marine life in the aquarium from fishes to frogs to sea lion to sharks to penguins. To see such such amount of different and colourful species in the aquarium was really fascinating. They also have a 4d show related to sharks, a sea lion and otter show. The way they have maintained the marine life alongwith with their geographical location is commendable.

Really enjoyed spending time at the aquarium
