Family time at the Vancouver Aquarium is Back!

With months of quarantine behind us, families are looking forward to exploring the world, albeit more cautiously, and enjoying the activities kids love. On Friday, June 26. Every ticket purchased will help provide a future of the not-for-profit Vancouver Aquarium, which continues to face bankruptcy as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and three-month closure.

Safety of visitors, staff and animals remains the Vancouver Aquarium’s top priority. In accordance with Government guidelines, the Vancouver Aquarium will offer a new, timed-ticketed, one-way flow experience that will allow visitors to encounter the wonder of our ocean, safely and in a crowd-free setting.

In adherence of physical distancing directives from the office of the Provincial Health Officer, the Aquarium will initially be operating at approximately 20-30% of normal capacity for this time of year. Full details about the new Vancouver Aquarium experience and COVID-19 protocols can be found at

Cute and fluffy sea otters, boisterous sea lions, as well as turtles, jellies, snakes and insects are just a few of the 70,000 creatures for visitors to discover (or rediscover!) at the Vancouver Aquarium.

Don’t miss the Vancouver Aquarium’s new exhibit Water Babies: Parenting 101 highlighting the weird and wonderful ways marine life parent, offering tongue-in-cheek parenting tips inspired by aquatic life. In addition, new in F&B for summer 2020 will be Vancouver Aquarium Picnic in the Park. Purchase a picnic basket or bag from the Ocean Wise Cafe and enjoy a leisurely lunch or a snack in Stanley Park with your group. Picnic in the Park will be available as of early July. More details coming soon.

The Vancouver Aquarium closed on March 17 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While closed, the not-for-profit Vancouver Aquarium lost almost all revenue and yet was still faced with more than $1 million dollars a month in animal care and facility costs. Every visit will help protect the future of the animals at the aquarium and those who love to visit them.
