Active Learning In
The Aquarium And
The Community

We are among the first aquariums to incorporate trained Naturalists into our galleries, providing visitors with answers to their most frequently asked questions about the mysterious and elusive creatures living in our oceans. We also encourage active learning within our community and local schools through educational programs including Aqua Camps, Aqua Clubs, Aqua Kits and the B.C. Hydro AquaVan program. The best way we can protect marine life and our oceans is to learn everything we can about them, and pass that knowledge along to others.
