Canada’s largest aquarium is also a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of aquatic life through display, interpretation, education, research, and direct action.

Daily Fun

Daily shows feature belugas, dolphins, seals, sea lions, sea otters, reef sharks, and various birds of prey. Visitors are invited to feed the otters.

Conservation & Education

The Aquarium prides itself on its conservation and educational programs. It sponsors and conducts marine conservation research on killer whales, black rockfish, spotted frogs, leatherback turtles, and beluga whales. They also own a local salmon stream, which they use to monitor feeding and breeding patterns of the fish. Visitors can take part in their Adopt an Orca program.


The AquaVan is a traveling aquarium exhibit that visits area schools and community centers and gives students and citizens the opportunity to touch invertebrates and learn about the marine environment in a more intimate setting.

Night at the Aquarium

Sleepovers offer visitors the chance to see the aquarium at night. Participants sleep in front of the tanks and wake up to breakfast in…tank?
