I hadn't really planned on going to the Vancouver Aquarium but as we woke up to yet another rainy day and were running out of indoors things to do, we decided to hit the Aquarium and we ended up having a pretty good time! A visit to the Aquarium is not exactly cheap ($19.95 for adults) but as we ended up spending the entire afternoon there, I felt I got my money's worth. The Aquarium is divided into two sections - an indoor and an outdoor one. Outdoors is where you'll find the dolphins, beluga whales, sea otters, seals and sea lions - there are shows running every half hour (rain or shine) between 10:30 am and 4:30 pm, just make sure to check the schedule inside. Inside the Aquarium, you'll find a variety of sea creatures and ecosystems and strangely enough, my favorite part was the jelly fish exhibit - it made for some really cool pictures! Definitely a great place to go if you're traveling with children, but grown-ups will probably enjoy it just as much :o)

The Vancouver Aquarium is open year round every day of the week (9:30 am to 7:00 pm during summer; 9:30 am to 5:00 pm during winter).

Directions: Located in Stanley Park - Bus #19 will take you very close to the Aquarium
