2020-09-08: The Vancouver Aquarium has closed indefinitely due to the Covid pandemic.
The Vancouver Aquarium is one of the best, if not the best, aquarium in Canada. The Aquarium is run by a non-profit society that does research and conservation in addition to running the aquarium. The aquarium has many different aquatic species such as dolphins, otters, penguins, fish, sea urchins, etc. In addition, it has an Amazon gallery that has many exotic birds, snakes, and other slimy animals! The aquarium also has a popular dolphin show that you shouldn't miss! The aquarium is the perfect place to go and spend a day, especially on those rainy Vancouver days! The aquarium is a family-friendly attraction and children will be amazed by what they see!
The Vancouver Aquarium has recently undergone a $100 million dollar renovation/expansion.
