Stanley Park's biggest draw, the aquarium is home to 9000 water-loving critters – including sharks, wolf eels, beluga whales and a somewhat shy octopus. There's also a small, walk-through rainforest area of birds, turtles and a statue-still sloth. Check out the mesmerizing iridescent jellyfish tanks as well as the schedule for feeding times The attraction's latest draw is its 4-D Experience: a 3-D movie theater with added wind, mist and aromas.

If you're traveling with someone who really loves marine animals, consider booking an Animal Encounter tour (from $60). They'll get close to their chosen mammal and learn all about being a trainer. The sea otter encounter is also recommended if you want to learn why they eat laying on their backs, using their stomachs as dinner plates.
