The Vancouver aquarium has plenty to see.

The Beluga whales are here, and you can really see them very close up. They do a show which is entertaining, but be warned, get a seat early, as they fill quickly, and don't sit in the front row, otherwise you will get wet!

These whales look like big loveable marshmallows. We didn't see them in the wild in Alaska, but we did see them in the end, and it was great! I stayed a watched them for ages, they look so lovable!

We didn't do this, but you can have a " Beluga Encounter" and come face-to-face with a Beluga whale.

If you take this opportunity, you will visit "Imaq and Kavna" in a behind-the-scenes marine mammal habitat and participate in an interactive training session alongside an Aquarium trainer.
It is a chance to feed, touch and have fun with the Beluga's!
You also receive a take-home CD of digital photos taken during your beluga encounter!
