Appreciation Week

We love our members

Members are a part of everything we do here at the Vancouver Aquarium. Through a week of special programs and activities, we get to celebrate our members and thank you for making such a remarkable difference in the health of our oceans.
During Member Appreciation Week, you can start your day with early opens, enter a prize draw for an Animal Encouter, receive additional discounts at the Gift Shop, and participate in exclusive members-only programs Oct 15 -18, like a behind-the-scenes jellyfish tour, Wet Lab session, and a meet-a-snake experience! These special programs are free, but space is very limited.  Sign up at the Guest Services Desk on the day of your visit to save yourself a spot.
