This is a "hands-on" interactive mini-aquarium that allows visitors a snap shot of how much life is supported in the ocean. The self guided tour was worth much more than the $5 admission fee and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

The Ucluelet Aquarium is closed seasonally for general maintenance and re-collection of our species. We close in December and re-open again in mid March.
