Vancouver Aquarium, Vancouver

Vancouver Aquarium
Located in Stanley Park, the Vancouver Aquarium is Canada's largest, and holds approximately 8000 sea creatures. It is also a marine mammal rescue and rehabilititation centre.

The aquarium is also very family-focused (thank goodness!!) as we were travelling with three young children and the place kept them entertained for hours. There are tanks where they can touch and handle sea creatures under supervision and and Clownfish Cove, an educational play area, where they can let some steam off. Clownfish Cove is also a great place for parents to nap, as I witnessed several prostate bodies on the padded benches and exercise pads which surround the area.

My favorite thing was the beluga whale observation tank. Watching them swim past in a slow water ballet was very zen after a hot, hectic afternoon with the kids.
