We’re super excited to welcome our one millionth visitor this year. Although the Aquarium hosts nearly one million visitors every year, this holiday season marks the first time our annual visitors will exceed the one million mark. And we’re so close!

This milestone celebrates the incredible support of our members and visitors who have expressed a keen interest in learning about aquatic conservation and connecting to aquatic life.

Through new exhibits and features, Aquarium visitors experience the natural world in meaningful way. The Aquarium’s popular winter holiday feature, Luminescence, a celebration of aquatic light, is one of the unique ways visitors can discover the beauty, and uncover the mystery, of aquatic life.

As a self-supporting, non-profit society, Aquarium visitors directly contribute to our extensive conservation, research and education programs. Every visit to the Aquarium helps us further engage the community in aquatic conservation.

Visitors and members enable our deeply committed team to operate successful initiatives such as our award-winning, national Ocean Wise­™ program and our Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup program.

To reflect the generous support of our visitors this year, we will be celebrating our one millionth visitor this year in a grand way – the millionth visitor will receive a custom behind-the-scenes tour, VIP access to our 4-D theatre, lunch and a lifetime membership!

Hope you’ll join us in the celebration by becoming our one millionth visitor this year.
