After September 7, 2020, the Aquarium will pause all on-site public programming and temporarily close to the public while we focus on transformation.

With over 70,000 amazing aquatic creatures at the Vancouver Aquarium, what will you see today? While following our new one-way flow through six-zones and 86 indoor and outdoor exhibits you’ll see the mesmerizing jellyfish and say hi to the adorable sea otters, as well as the free-roaming animals found in the popular Amazon gallery. You'll also visit the Treasures of the BC Coast gallery to discover the unique and breath-taking animals that live in BC’s local waters, including the Pacific octopus. The Vancouver Aquarium is located minutes from downtown in world famous Stanley Park. 

On your visit, you will also learn about serious conservation issues facing the oceans today, such as ocean pollution and overfishing. Did you know that over 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into the oceans each year? Did you know that only 48% of the major fish stocks in Canadian waters are considered healthy?
