    if u have two adults going, buy one adult membership and you get one free admission along with it, price almost the same as buying two adult ticket, plus you get discount on most purchase and food.

    This place looks great since they finished the renovations. Tons of cool exhibits both indoors and outdoors. Great place for a fun date or to spend time with family.

    Be sure to check out as many shows as you can and leave a whole day to do it. Everything is very humane and well done@plus they have a great 4d film!

    Wonderful aquarium right in the park. Terrific live shows, 4D theater and informative, well presented exhibits. Clownfish Cove is a fun spot for the under 8 kids.

    If you already bought your entrance pass but reconsider and want the membership benefits, you can apply what you already paid towards the anual membership (worth it if you pay for 2 people or more)

    There are short feature programs focusing on different animals every hour: penguin program is good, so is the one on whales.

    Lovely aquarium right in Stanley Park. If you arrive after 4.30pm you can get in again the next day free.
  • Jessalynne P.
    The sea otters are adorably cute. And there is something for everyone: frogs, jellyfish, whales, even bats. The food is overpriced, but that's no surprise.

    Next, a trip to the Aquarium was incredibly enjoyable as I find aquatic animals very fascinating! For thrill-seekers, try the 4D experience! It’s exhilarating!

    You'll get the best view of dolphins and sea lions performing if you go during an informal feeding time (around noon when I went).

    Great shows! Make sure you carefully check the schedule.The sea otters are adorable, as well as the belugas and dolphins
  • Charlotte J.
    Sizeable place - can spend a good hour or two here. I have to say - the tanks for some animals seem too small. I also don't like the shows they put on - it should be about conservation in my opinion.

    One of the marmosets really like kids and will chase you back and forth across the habitat on the other side of the glass.

    Buy $6 all day parking. You will enjoy your time not being rushed to cram it all in under 2 hours.

    If you haven't done it before, the 4D experience is well-worth 1/2 the price of your admission.

    Instead of lining up at the front gate for a ticket, use the fast check-ins along the side and skip the line ups. They only accept credit cards.

    Been here 5+ times
    Avoid the 'free' app snappz. 3 QR code locations then you (or your kids) need $3.99 to unlock. Better to just be creative & make up a game to keep kids engaged. Feels like a cash grab!
  • Joshua P.
    The beluga whales were cute. Lots of interesting things to see. Very expensive though.

    At around 2pm they feed the Dolphins. Not a regular show but the trainer puts them through some skills and there is less people

    Must go spot with your kids. Never disappointed even if you are no more kid!

    I liked the outdoor sector with seals, whales and penguins. We don’t have this at other aquariums in Canada.

    Buy a membership and bypass the huge afternoon lines. It pays for itself in just two visits!

    If you have kids, buy a membership because they will want to come back over and over. Memberships also allow you to skip the line ups.

    The one thing that really struck me was the Amazon exhibit. Those things they have in the water there are really damn freaky. I don't ever want to go swimming in the Amazon! LOL

    You can skip the line if you buy tickets online with your phone, but buying with a smartphone takes longer
