More than 35 million people have visited the Aquarium since our opening in 1956. Located in Stanley Park, we’re open to visitors from around the world 365 days a year.
The Vancouver Aquarium is Canada’s largest aquarium and one of the most visited sites in Stanley Park. It is home to more than 70,000 creatures including beluga whales, dolphins, sea otters, anacondas, three-toed sloths, eels and more.
The Vancouver Aquarium is widely respected for its research and marine stewardship, and visitors can learn more about the region’s marine life through the numerous exhibits. Adults and kids alike will love the entertaining and educational “encounters” program, which allows visitors to go behind the scenes and get up close and personal with the animals and the people who train them. This includes feeding, helping train and learning about the habitats and lifestyles of dolphins, beluga whales, sea lions, sea otters, sea turtles and other sea creatures.
