Vancouver Aquarium, Vancouver Reviews - Write a Review
Love to visit the aquarium from time to time to see the frogs, dolphins, sharks, and the cute and lovely penguins! The addition of the "Discover Ray" exhibition lets you get really up-close with the sting rays. This place is both fun and educational for all ages! One thing I like is that all of the featured sea creatures (such as the False Killer Whale) on display is that they were rescued and being taken care of as they are determined to be non-releasable. That makes it more reasonable to keep them and providing a home for them. Prices for food and drinks at the cafe are a little too expensive and wish it could be improved a bit so it is more friendly.
Good experience albeit the place being a little small. We arrived at the ticketing counter an hour before it closed and they were kind enough to mention that our admission ticket will be valid the next day too should we wish to visit the following day, to allow for more time at the aquarium. Ticket prices are quite steep at $39 per adult. However, I hope that the proceeds go towards education of marine life, rescue and food for the animals. Loved seeing the sea otters. That is definitely a must-see area. We went to the pet the rays area. There are proper instructions on how what to do and how to pet them. We even had a ray coming up and bumping our fingers for a 'backrub'!
A great place to get close with aquatic animals. Educational and stimulating environment. However, after learning about how sharks should not be kept in captivity, I have to take off stars. As an animal lover, I cannot support places that keep animals captive solely for the purpose of making money.
The best aquarium I have ever seen. The collection and wide display of fishes and other aquatic animals is breathtaking. My 3 year old enjoyed it like hell specially the sea lion show and the dolphin show.. highly recommended for the whole family.
Great place to spend the afternoon! Lots of cool animals to see and exhibits to check out. Food is a little bit pricey.
