The Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre plants Sidney on the eco-tourism map of the world.

Snugly located in the Sidney Pier Building, this is the contemporary aquarium at its best. Tanks and exhibits evoke a sense of wonder at the undersea world.

Another excellent learning experience is available across the street at Mineral World, where kids of all ages can explore in the Scratch Patch. Peer inside a kid-sized volcano, find out which rocks float and collect a bag of gemstones to take home.

Sidney Marine Life

The 930sqm/10,000sqft, 17-aquaria Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre is dedicated to the mysterious tapestry of marine life in the Salish Sea, the body of water between Vancouver Island and the mainland. Visitors are transfixed right off the bat with aquaria of jellyfish and brilliant orange sea nettles.

The jellyfish, in perpetual dance mode, are as fluid and graceful as a troupe of ballerinas.
