“A variety of mammals, reptiles, birds and fish”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

The aquarium is situated in stanley park. The aquarium is a good size where you can do it in half a day (including a few shows).

Their 4D show is amazing and fun. There is a variety of animals at the aquarium from sharks, fish, jellyfish, Beluga whales, birds, sloths, snakes, frogs, otters, seals, dolphins, and many more! Their shows are very informative and interesting to see.

“Just fine!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The aquarium wasn't as great as I thought it would be. It's quite small, and the beluga exhibit did upset me a bit (I thought it was too small for them). The rest of the place was very clean though, and well run considering the millions of kids running around. Volunteers didn't seem to know much about the exhibits they were monitoring..

“Great Aquarium”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Its in one of the prettiest places in Vancouver - Stanley Park - and its great for all ages.
I still go almost every Sunday to see the whales, the dolphins and my favorite the shark take.

Lots of parking and even though they are under construction it is time well spent.

“very nice exibits”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This aquarium is worth the visit, not only do they have a large display of animals, they also have a great viewing setup. Visitors are able to get much closer and more personal then many aquariums in the US. Food is a little expensive though, so plan ahead.
