“A fun place to spend an hour or two!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We really enjoyed the fact that the aquarium sets their marine life free each year and fills their tanks with a new array of creatures. The staff are friendly and ready to give information about the inhabitants of their tanks. You may also touch a few of the creatures in designated tanks. We came in at feeding time, so lots of action in the big fish tank! It's a small aquarium, but we were still surprised by the diversity of marine life.

“Unique, Best Aquarium Ever”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Brilliant! With their new facility they have expanded and you get more for your tiny amount of money you pay to enter. There are lots of touch tanks which is unique to this aquarium experience. They have great viewing aquariums to show you the many species that live on their coast. They now have a huge center aquarium that holds lingcod, halibut, rockfish, and rattail fish. There are many other unique things to see. Look for the Albino Salmon fry.

“Nice little place to visit”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We took our kids here to kill a few hours, nice little place. Kids had there hands in the water touching as much as they could. I would go back, not the biggest of places but you wouldn't expect that for the area so recommend.

“Great Little Aquarium”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Located in beautiful down-town Ucluelet. Would be great for children because of the hands-on displays of sea creatures. Staff of young people was very knowledgeable and ready to share that knowledge.
