Stanley Park's biggest draw, the aquarium is home to 9000 water-loving critters – including sharks, wolf eels and a somewhat shy octopus. There's also a small, walk-through rainforest area of birds, turtles and a statue-still sloth. The aquarium also keeps captive whales and dolphins and organizes animal encounters with these creatures, which may concern some visitors. Animal welfare groups claim keeping cetaceans in enclosed tanks is harmful for these complex animals.

The attraction's latest draw is its 4-D Experience: a 3-D movie theater with added wind, mist and aromas.
