A magical place for grown ups and toddlers alike. Good food to boot. We especially love the 4D theater and Clownfish Cove.

Visiting here really made me think about our oceans and my everyday use of plastic! The program needs to be brought to every school in Canada and beyond! It also needs to be brought to adults attention!

We watched dolphin feedings and it was cool to be much closer than we expected because the show area is small and intimate. Lots of stuff to see and all ages enjoyed it. Pricey admission but I guess they have to keep the place running! The jellyfish were the highlight of our trip - could watch them for hours.

The kids enjoyed the educational programs the aquarium offered. They focused on the importance not using plastic and it’s impact on the oceans. This was very interesting for party I was with and very informative. It was a bit disheartening when going through the gift shop they did not practise what they preached and had various plastic trinkets bags etc. It would of made more of a significant impact if they would lead by example and be void of Plastic products.
