World Oceans Day


Event Details

Join the Vancouver Aquarium and communities around the world in celebrating World Oceans Day.  This year, we’re celebrating “Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet.” 

The oceans are a big part of our lives, whether we think about them every day or not.  Did you know the oxygen from every other breathe we take comes from plankton in our oceans?

We’re celebrating World Oceans Day on Wednesday June 8, 2016 and we’re hoping you and your family will join us for oceans of fun!  The following activities will be hosted at the Aquarium in addition to our regularly scheduled programming.

11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

  • Our AquaVan team will be set up in the Ocean Courtyard, just inside the Aquarium main entrance, from 11:00 – 3:00 p.m.
  • Our Ocean Wise sustainable seafood team will be at the Aquarium with their “Match the Fillet” game.
  • Our mascot Bee Bop the Beluga will make appearances at the Aquarium from 11:00 - 3:00 p.m.

12:00 – 1:00 p.m.

Here are some other activities you can do with your family to celebrate World Oceans Day:
