Allow about 2 hours for the visit.
This place is amazing. So much to see.. frogs, sea lion, walrus penguins, seahorses, sea turtles and sloths are just a few of the attractions. You could easily spend three hours minimum here. Great entertainment and learning about our oceans for kids and adults. The Vancouver Aquarium has an exceptional display called Vortex by Douglas Coupland focusing on plastics in the ocean. If you live locally than a membership is definitely worth it.
The Vancouver Aquarium was exceptional! My niece was route from Italy and she had never seen anything like it. The shows that we went to were fantastic. When the shows were over the staff were happy to talk to us. We saw the 4D movie, and they had a great exhibit of all the trash that is in the sea. Is definitely very sad to see our oceans in this state. All of the staff were helpful and friendly, and I would definitely recommend it to anybody who is visiting Vancouver.
