Please note: After September 7, 2020, the Aquarium will pause all on-site public programming and temporarily close to the public while we focus on transforming the Vancouver Aquarium to a new model that is financially sustainable in the long-term and accelerates our mission of ocean conservation. This temporary closure impacts all Vancouver Aquarium and Ocean Wise educational programming that normally takes place at the Vancouver Aquarium. We look forward to welcoming back students, teachers, parents and all life-long learners when the Aquarium’s reinvention is complete. In order to continue our important work, the Ocean Wise Education team has further shifted programming online to accommodate our new learning reality. We encourage you to visit Online Ocean to learn more about all our virtual offerings.
We're putting a pause on our on-site school programs this year, but that doesn't mean the learning has to stop!
Until we can welcome you back, we invite you to continue to experience, explore and learn about our oceans with through our virtual programming.
