Tucked within Vancouver’s beloved Stanley Park, the Vancouver Aquarium has earned a worldwide reputation as a leading marine science center. It’s home to more than 70,000 animals heralding from the Arctic to the Amazon.
While it’s known as one of the top ‘kid-friendly’ Vancouver activities, you don’t have to be a tiny tot to be blown away by this stunning destination. Throughout the 166 aquatic displays, you’ll find a diverse array of inhabitants including a rescue dolphin, sea otters, and sea lions. And if you visit during the winter holidays, you might even spot a jolly old elf scuba diving with the fishes. (He’s known fondly as ‘Scuba Claus.’)
