So armed with a couple of movies, some snacks for the drive and a packed lunch, we set off to the Vancouver Aquarium for a day of fun and discovery!
Our very first stop was to head outside, where we found the touch pool and the otters! I just love the otters, they are so playful!
After the show we ventured inside where we were greeted by some really neat jellyfish!
A 3D film about sharks was next on the schedule so we headed over to the theatre area. We were supplied with some trendy 3D glasses and found some good seats, front and centre. I won’t give away too much, but the film was a little more than 3D, there were some neat effects added that really made it fun, especially for my kids, who were surprised a few times!
After the film we decided to wander around inside and see what kinds of interesting creatures we could find. Don’t you just love how the stingrays look like they have little faces on their undersides!
We spent quite a while exploring around the different galleries inside and the outside exhibits too. Somehow I forgot to take a photo of the adorable penguins, so I guess we will just have to go back again for another visit soon!
As we were leaving we stopped to snap a few quick photos outside and then it was time for the drive back home. These day trips are always so much fun for everyone!
