Be Amazed All Day Long

See Incredible Things

With over 50,000 animals from across the world, there’s no shortage of incredible things to see at the Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise ® initiative. This vast variety of animals makes up a tableau of ever-changing activities and behaviours, so no two visits are ever the same. But the Aquarium features more than just animals—we also do groundbreaking marine research and have incredible conservation initiatives to help protect the marine world.
