Where Weird is Normal

When it comes to animals, what seems weird to us is normal to them. This Easter, uncover all of the quirky and curious facts about the 50,000 creatures living at the Vancouver Aquarium – where weird is normal.

Take part in our eggs-tradordinary Easter scavenger hunt, and discover which animal uses its mouth as an egg incubator, and which fish’s eggs are laid in their very own ‘purse’!

Dive even deeper into the fascinating underwater world when you take in special programs and shows including Meet a Penguin and our exciting 4-D movie. Get up close and personal with your favourite animal during an Animal Encounter, and go behind-the-scenes during a Be a Biologist tour.
