This aquarium is one of the best I’ve been to. Have visited twice and there’s always something new to see. The sea otters were just adorable-one carrying a frisbee around on his tummy. Go early to avoid the crowds.

The Vancouver Aquarium continues to be a fantastic place for all ages. The Wet Lab ( extremely accessible) the 4D movie (sharks) and the Douglas Coupland exhibit VORTEX, all totally worth it. The staff is amazing, so helpful and friendly!
Lots of local items for sale in the gift shop

I and my kids (5 and 9) spent nice two and a half hours there. We especially enjoyed the dolphin training.
However, the entrance fee is hugely overpriced, since for 1 adult and 2 children I paid ~ 85 CAD ( - 1 point)
Another issue (-1 point) is that you CANNOT exit the place without passing in a huge souvenir shop. A tired kiddo will definitely pick an unnecessary toy on his way to the exit and that will add to the already expensive visit. Please consider making a regular exit (like the one Seattle Zoo has).
