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

When it comes to Halloween, it’s all about creepy crawlies and slime-tastic critters! The slimiest of them all, is the mysterious hagfish. With an eel like body and an almost alien mouth, hagfishes produce slime as a defense against predators. Join us at 9:15 a.m. on October 14 for a Halloween Super Saturday in the Lower Teck Engagement Gallery, featuring a special hagfish program and slime making session. Join us afterwards for story time in Clownfish Cove at 9:45 a.m. and be sure to stop by the hagfish exhibit in the Treasure of the BC Coast. Throughout the morning there will be a rare opportunity to see the hagfish enjoying a Halloween feast! Members are also invited to wear a Halloween costume for this Super Saturday.

Bring a reusable container if you’d like to take some slime home!

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 10 a.m. Don't forget to bring a re-useable water bottle to support our new 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
