I've been to a couple of aquariums so far but this one is extraordinary. They are open from March till December each year and release their animals back into to the when they close in December. I think this a great idea and should be introduced in other aquariums as well. They also have a nice gift shop were I bought a great book.

This aquarium can be seen entirely in 30 minutes or less. (Bummer!) It is well laid out and really fascinating. As it is a catch and release aquarium it is all local marine life from the harbour. Great staff who are super helpful and well informed. We would have loved to spend the day in here if there was more to see. Very well laid out and lots to touch for the kids especially.

Nice to see the fish and invertebrates in the waters around Ucluelet and know they are released at the end of the season. Great if you enjoy touch tanks. Enjoyed seeing the octopus on the move.

A real gem, all fish and creatures on display are locally caught, and released after being guests of the aquarium. The knowledgeable staff happily answered my many questions.

Brought my 2 year old daughter and she was in heaven. The touch pools are awesome. Great views of the harbour and saw an otter and seal just outside the windows. Totally recommend to anyone.
