After visiting the clothing – optional Wreck Beach of Vancouver the next spot of tourist interest that we visited at Vancouver was the Vancouver aquarium. People from near as well as far off places gush to this site every year to enjoy the mysticism of the underwater world. This amazing aquarium is best for vacationers especially families that love to indulge in the mysteries of the aquatic world.
This aquarium is best to visit during the months of November to January. One can experience here a winter holiday like never before. As soon as we entered the Vancouver aquarium we were awestruck at the beauty of the Christmas tree located in the ocean courtyard. There is a maze of decorated trees in the outdoor of the aquarium which is quite interesting to cross.
Inside the Vancouver aquarium is the stunning and modern Tech connections Gallery that portray a kaleidoscope of multi – coloured aquatic themed decorations. One can ascend up the spiral staircase to notice the amazing 4.5 metres tall marine debris tree made by the renowned artist Pete Clarkson.
There is a hue of colours and festivity in whole of the aquarium that sets a very jolly mood for visitors. It is one of the best places to visit with your family. There are a number of holiday activities, interactive games and exhibitions held at regular intervals in the Vancouver aquarium to keep the visitors engrossed. Both my kids Akash and Adarsh were so excited and happy to experience the interactive workshops at the Vancouver aquarium.
One of the most famous activities here is the Scuba Claus annual visit to the Aquarium. Especially children love to hear stories from the Scuba elves and join the interactive workshop of making their own holiday craft.
There is an atmosphere of merriment in the entire vicinity and I could feel how happy and energetic all the little kids running here and there in the vicinity were. Both my kids were amazed to watch the Eel – electric light show held at the aquarium that showed how electricity generated from the electric eel fish is used to light up the exhibits.
