As a boutique hotel in Vancouver, the Victorian Hotel offers quick and easy access to some of the most popular tourist attractions around the city. One of the most popular is the Vancouver Aquarium located inside Stanley Park, just a short bus ride away.


The Vancouver Aquarium offers visitors an immersive encounter with over 50,000 marine animals, 365 days a year. With over 30 exhibits ranging from the Tropical to the Arctic, it spans the globe in its presentation.


And the Aquarium offers far more than just live displays. Enjoy a 4-D theatre experience, live feedings, and educational talks from world-renowned trainers and researchers provide illuminating insight to the world beneath the waves. There are lots of special attractions for children, too. For example, the Wet Lab offers a hands-on experience and a look behind the scenes at what happens at the Aquarium.


Witness gorgeous colorful exhibits where majestic sea lions roar, colourful, tropical birds titter in the air, and playful sea otters frolic—check out the live feed right now! Every month there is a changing roster of activities the aquarium provides that the whole family can take part in, from Ocean Wise food samplings, to After Hours experiences for adults, to Super Saturdays for members.


Getting to the Aquarium couldn’t be easier. For those without a car, it’s just a block’s walk to West Pender. Hop on the #19 bus to Stanley Park. Even better, Stanley Park offers a wide variety of other activities as well, making it the perfect way to spend the day.


By supporting the Aquarium, you’ll also be supporting the Ocean Wise program, which aims to inspire the global community and increase its understanding, wonder and appreciation for the oceans.


After you’ve had your fill of marine life, come on back to the Victorian Hotel and unwind in one of our large soaker tubs, relax with some TV resting on our pillowtop beds, and enjoy a complimentary Healthy Start breakfast from us in the morning.
