We are the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre, the premier aquarium of the Salish Sea! Our award-winning facility takes a ‘hands on, hands wet’ approach to learning, and offers an unparalleled ocean experience for people of all ages.

The Centre houses 28 underwater habitats teeming with marine life - from the giant Pacific octopus to microscopic plankton. Take a virtual trip to the seafloor in our submarine elevator, shake hands with sea stars and tickle urchins in our touch pools, and examine the enigmatic behaviors of hundreds of species as they make their home in our intricately designed exhibits. You won’t believe what you find!

With a knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff of Oceaneers to help guide your experience, the mysteries of our beautiful Salish Sea will be revealed…

Open Daily at 10am. Free parking and fully wheelchair accessible.
