Enjoy Super Saturdays At The Aquarium

Come and start the day with us. On the second Saturday of each month, the Vancouver Aquarium holds Super Saturdays for our members. This is an opportunity to visit the Aquarium without line-ups, and instead enjoy quiet galleries and specialty programming. We open our doors early for this special members-only event, where each Super Saturday has a unique theme with lots of activities for kids and adults alike.

Super Saturdays

Super Saturday

The Amazon forest has no shortage of life, ranging from colourful parrots to furry two-toed sloths, but go a little deeper and you’ll find where fish and forest meet. Dive into the flooded forests of the Amazon and you’ll find some of the biggest freshwater fish in the world! Find out more about the air breathing arapaima, or the giant tambaqui that live among the unique mangrove systems when you join us for this Amazon-themed Super Saturday!

Start off your Family Day long weekend  with a Storytime program at 9:00 a.m. in the Teck Engagement Gallery. Afterwards, find us in the Tropics Zone for an Amazon Big Fishes Talk at 9:15 a.m.

Also as a special treat, we are also offering a special opportunity for members to go on a plant-themed tour** with one of the Aquarium’s expert biologists. The tour starts at 9:40 a.m., so sign up at the Guest Services Desk on the day of the event to learn about some of the incredible plant life in the Amazon and their critical role in this ecosystem.

Galleries* will be open at 8:30 a.m. with free coffee at the Coffee Bar when you bring in a re-useable mug before 9:30 a.m. Don't forget to bring a re-useable water bottle to support our water bottle initiative!

Enjoy no line-ups, quiet galleries, a complimentary copy of the Vancouver Sun (first-come, first-serve) and exclusive programs. No registration is required. Bring a friend and receive 20% off general admission for up to two guests.

If you have any questions or comments about the morning’s programs or suggestions for future Super Saturday themes, don’t hesitate to contact members@ocean.org and let us know. We’d love to hear from you!

* Discover Rays will not be open during Super Saturday hours

**Limited slots available, so sign up early to avoid disappointment.
