It was a very special day at the Vancouver Aquarium as we welcomed our one millionth visitor this morning. We surprised Janet Wallace, and her husband, Garth, of Seattle, Washington, with a special dolphin encounter to learn more about Pacific white-sided dolphins and a basket of goodies from the Vancouver Aquarium Gift Shop.
For the first time, in late 2012, the Aquarium reached its first millionth visitor in a single year. Achieving this milestone in early December 2013 signals another amazing year at the Aquarium.
Every visitor is special to us as every guest joins us in our quest to conserve aquatic life. Proceeds from admissions to our gift shop directly contribute to our conservation efforts as a non-profit society. Our thanks are shared with the community for their ongoing support.
This holiday season, there’s another reason to come out of the cold and enjoy a unique experience at the Aquarium. Visit the Vancouver Aquarium and discover the beautiful world of fluorescent and bioluminescent light that exists in the depths of the ocean during the Aquarium’s ever-popular winter feature Luminescence—a celebration of aquatic light.
The Aquarium is also screening Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas 4-D in the Goldcorp 4-D Theatre. Make sure you catch a glimpse of the man in red, Scuba Claus, who returns to the Strait of Georgia Exhibit on weekends and daily from December 21 – 24.
Luminescence runs until January 22, 2014. For more information about Luminescence or to view the daily show schedule, please visit our website.
