The Vancouver Aquarium opened in 1956 and contains 166 displays and over 70,000 animals.   These animals range from beluga whales to sea lions, dolphins, and more exotic animals such as caimans and sloths.  The Vancouver Aquarium is the largest aquarium in Canada and is run by a non-profit society. The aquarium is divided up into a number of different galleries based on geographical region.   As a result there are different climates and animals in the Arctic Region, the Pacific Canada Region, and the Amazon Rainforest (among others).  Expansion of the aquarium is expected to start at the end of 2007. 

There are more intimate events such as a Trainer Tour and a Beluga Encounter that are available to adult/child pairs for a fee.

Including tax, entrance fees are $23.52 for Adults, $17.92 for Seniors, Youths (13-18), and Students with a current Student ID card. Children (4-12) are $14.56, and Children 3 years and under are free.

I loved that aquarium even though I think big mammals like wales or dolphins should be free in the open ocean... When I was visiting in 2008 they just had the new beluga baby and it was lovely to watch.
The aquarium was very packed and you have to stand in line to come in - seems to be a very popular place.

Both indoor and outdoor aquarium located within Stanley Park, the highlight is the Beluga Whales. The youtube clip of two little sea otters holding hands was also filmed here.

The beluga whales make this one of the best aquariums I have ever visited even though it is a little small overall. The belugas are amazing, however, and worth the trip.

Excellent aquarium that includes Beluga Whales and Dolphins. The different region sections have quite different feels/climates to them and add to the atmosphere.

I really enjoyed this aquarium when I visited in 1999. I still find the New Orleans aquarium to be the best of the ones I have visited, but I might be biased.
