Steller’s Bay Sea Lions
Just opened on Canada Day this year, Steller’s Bay is a new exhibit that spotlights majestic and mysterious creatures — Steller sea lions. Transported to a fishing village on Canada’s west coast, visitors delight as they experience sea lions basking brilliantly in the sun and hear them roaring in spectacular chorus. Below the surface stands huge underwater viewing windows where visitors will be immersed in a sea lion’s world, getting up close as the dynamic animals glide through the water with incredible power and agility.
The spectacular new exhibit prominently features an active research station, bringing behind-the-scenes research to the forefront and allowing visitors to deep dive into the critical role these animals play in conserving their counterparts in the wild.
In addition to the ever-changing scenery, there’s lots of fin-tastic things to see and do:
- Touch a stingray as they glide through the water in the Discover Rays touch pool.
- See birds of a feather as African penguins waddle about inside the Aquarium.
- Discover the secret lives of sharks as things heat up in the Tropic Zone.
- Catch a screening of the thrilling 4-D film, Coastal Predators.
Experience hands-on learning with marine invertebrates like sea stars, sea anemones, and more in the Wet Lab and Discover Rays. Food, cocktails, wine, and beer will be available for purchase. Tickets are only available online. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets early as they often sell out!
Vancouver Aquarium, an Ocean Wise initiative, is one of the world’s leading accredited aquariums, dedicated to the conservation of aquatic life.
