The Vancouver Aquarium is putting on a ton of kid-friendly activities over Spring Break. Did you know that Two-toed sloths can hold their pee for 156 hours? Or that male seahorses give birth to 150 babies every three months? Experience the weird, wonderful – and intriguingly normal – this Spring Break at the Vancouver Aquarium.
From March 16 to 31, special activities and program will keep little ones and their grownups fascinated and having fun all break long.
- Learn why African penguins have two sets of eyelids during the ‘Meet a Penguin’ program at 2:15 p.m. daily.
- Don’t miss the chance to get up close with a Red-footed tortoise or a Ball python during feature programs at 11:45 a.m. – all in the Teck Connections Gallery.
- Marvel in the extraordinary adaptations of sharks that make them the ultimate ocean predators and guardians – like an Epaulette shark’s ability to ‘walk’ – during Shark: A 4-D Experience in the 4-D theatre every 30 minutes starting at 11:15 a.m.
- Gather round for story time. The Aquarium team and puppet troupe will keep the young and the young-at-heart in stitches during this dynamic and engaging family-friendly program at 10:45 a.m. daily in the Pacific Canada Pavilion.
For even more Spring Break fun, the Vancouver Aquarium is extending its hours and will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. from March 16 to 31. Plan your visit and purchase your tickets at vanaqua.org/spring-break. The 4-D theatre is included with admission or membership.
