AOL Travel Editor’s Review

One of the world’s top aquariums is both a wonderful visitor attraction and a leading advocate for marine conservation. Bill Reid’s iconic orca statue greets visitors at the entrance, inside Stanley Park. Within the aquarium, otters gambol, belugas soar underwater, and sea lions bark, while display cases illustrate the colorful green, orange, crimson and butterscotch hues of underwater life in the Salish Sea. Just as important, the aquarium is a leader in research on Pacific marine mammals, and sponsors, with the Monterey Bay Aquarium, an Ocean Wise sustainable seafood campaign observed by most Vancouver chefs. Parking is scarce near the aquarium, it’s best to walk or use public transit.
