Decided to visit the aquarium while strolling through Stanley Park. It is impressive, with a lot of native British Columbian jellyfish and other creatures of the sea. Helen the dolphin is so sweet; she was rescued from a fishing net and had to have her...More

I enjoyed this,especially being in the middle of beautiful Stanley Park. The jellyfish were exceptional. there were cool tropical sections and the array of tropicals, sea otters, sea lions, etc was great.
superb exhibits, well-explained and a great emphasis on the dangers of plastics to our seas. Lots of water stations to top up your bottle, which was a nice touch, and they told you how many plastic bottles had been saved from landfill by your use....More
My husband and I had an afternoon layover in Vancouver, we decided to go into town and visit the aquarium.

Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views, beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical getaway spot for friends and families, especially as it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its best equestrian outlets.

One of the best and least expensive ways to see the aquarium and other sites is a bus excursion. The bus passes many sites and landmarks of Vancouver. You are your captain. You can select any or all of the sites along the way to get off the bus. The buses rotate around every 20 minutes so it is very easy to "jump off" see the sites and then "jump back on" when you are finished. The aquarium is unique to the birds, and fish life in the area. Many we do not have in the states. The time to see the aquarium is your choice. You can spend 30 minutes or a few hours.
The bus excursion we took let us off at a small pier when we boated down the bay and arrived at a huge market. This is a great place to walk around and taste any of the foods from countries all over, The market has clothing, ceramics, china, pottery, any and everything. It is a place to see. Then back on the boat when we were ready to see more or return to our bus stop where we originated. , Enjoy Vancouver. Go downtown (again jump off at bus stop-) see the Gas Powered clock and great eating. Spaghetti Factory (I believe) we ate. All kinds of food not just pasta at a moderate price. Enjoy your trip.
