Visited by accident. We were having an ice cream on the pier and found this! Glad we did! We have visited the aquarium in Ucluelet and we found this one just as good! Loved the Octopus and staff knowledgeable. Would love to return. Fantastic!!!

The staff really make this aquarium! There was one staff in particular, Julia, who was incredible and informative. Kids loved it, it doesn't look like much from the outside but it is packed full of sea life. Love the sustainable model of this little aquarium.
