On a recent trip to Vancouver Aaron and I headed over to Stanley Park to visit Vancouver’s iconic aquarium. I had tried visiting the aquarium in previous years but time constraints kept me from making it.
Having been to a few aquariums around the world I was excited to finally visit one in my own country.
Being cheeky and wanting to save some money as adult tickets were $29 and student tickets were $20 we told the lady at the ticket booth we were students and had left our I.D.’s back home. She asked us a few questions about what we were studying and for how long and happy with our answers finally stamped our wrists. Technically it wasn’t a far off lie as we do take online studies during the winter.
10 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily
9:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. for holidays
Once inside we made out way through the different areas of the world like the amazon and found our way outside to see the cute seals and beluga whales. Inside there is a crocodile looking thing but is actually related to the piranha family and many other cool creatures including an octopus!
If you ever get a chance to visit Vancouver you should spend a few hours in the aquarium and see the adorable otters and other cute aquatic life! Not to mention the tons and tons of jelly fish.
What makes me love the aquarium even more is that Vancouver Aquarium is a not-for-profit marine science centre that is dedicated to protecting our oceans and educating visitors through research and direct action.
