Celebrate summer with Vancouver Aquarium's After Hours (CONTEST)

Jul 5 2017, 11:39 pm

Everyone’s favourite adults-only After Hours night at Vancouver Aquarium is back on Thursday, July 20.

It’s the perfect place to celebrate the season with a date, your friends, and more than 50,000 aquatic creatures. Since the event is adults-only, you can explore the galleries with a wine, speciality cocktail, or a beer in-hand.

The best part? You’ll have access to the Aquarium’s newest sea lion exhibit, Steller’s Bay. Here, you can get up close with the squad, watch them bask in the evening sun from the fishing village-inspired boardwalk, and see them gracefully swim though the huge underwater viewing windows.

While you explore the Aquarium on your own, you can also do the following:

  • Touch a stingray as they glide through the water at the Discover Rays touch pool.
  • See African penguins waddle around inside the Aquarium.
  • Find out about the secret lives of sharks in the Tropic Zone.
  • Catch a screening of exhilarating 4-D film, Coastal Predators.
  • Experiencing hands-on learning with marine invertebrates like sea stars, sea anemones, and more in the Wet Lab.
