Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Or in the case of the Vancouver Aquarium, the fish or the egg? Back by popular demand, guests can take a crack at the third annual Easter Scavenger Hunt. Many creatures at Vancouver Aquarium hatch their young in fascinating ways from sitting on eggs to scattering them about to laying them in ‘purses’. Through this self-guided hunt, visitors will journey through the Aquarium to learn eggs-traordinary animal stories then use this knowledge to solve clues and uncover a secret word on the scavenger hunt form. Visitors return their completed form to receive a chocolate treat and enter to win prizes.
Embark on an Easter Scavenger Hunt with your family and friends as questions crafted by our eggs-perts take you on a journey through the Aquarium’s galleries – from the warmth of the Tropics to the cooler but oh-so-colourful British Columbia coast – in search of the answers. Return your completed Scavenger Hunt form to receive a chocolate treat and enter to win a prize.
Then deep dive into the fascinating underwater world as you take in special programs and shows. With more than 50,000 aquatic creatures, there’s so much to see and do!
