2021 update: Due to the pandemic, the Vancouver Aquarium is temporarily closed.
April 15, 2021: The long-term sustainability of the Vancouver Aquarium, and the affiliated Marine Mammal Rescue program, have been assured thanks to an agreement to transfer ownership to Herschend Enterprises! The new relationship ensures the continuation of the Aquarium’s 64-years of success as an animal care and animal rescue facility, a cherished educational venue, and one of BC’s top tourist and event destinations. Although the Aquarium doesn’t have a date yet, they are already working on a safe re-opening plan!
