Over the years our kids have always loved our visits to the Vancouver Aquarium…and so have we! There is something there to delight people of all ages. As we head into Family Day Weekend 2022, the Vancouver Aquarium has special offers for Metro Vancouver Families that you do not want to miss!
Over 65,000 animals, 30 world-class exhibits, and 1 unforgettable experience await families at the Vancouver Aquarium during Family Day weekend 2022. From February 11 to 21, explore Canada’s largest aquarium together with one child entrance for FREE with a regular ticket purchase. Vancouver Aquarium members can also bring a friend for free during this period!
From the wonders of the Amazon gallery to the fish, jellyfish, and octopus in the Canadian waters area, children will be delighted to observe various animals. Children and parents can enjoy the 15-minute 4D theatre experience of BBC’s Blue Planet II’s “Octopus” during their visit. Inspired by the critically-acclaimed BBC series, Blue Planet II, this special effects experience takes you beneath the surface to explore dynamic oceanic landscapes and one of the most captivating creatures that dwells there: the octopus. Discover how this eight-tentacled wonder masters physical and mental strengths to outwit and escape its underwater rivals.
The marine mammals are an excellent opportunity to appreciate the adorable otters, harbour seals, or sea lions. Meet rescued seals and sea lions now finding sanctuary at the Vancouver Aquarium. Learn their rescue stories, and what makes the Aquarium a leader in marine mammal rescue for over 60 years. And when you get hungry, a variety of Chef-inspired food options are available at Courtyard Café or Upstream Bar and Grill, including kid-approved treats and vegan choices.
We can't wait to SEA you!
