The days are starting to get cooler as summer is slowly coming to an end. To celebrate the beginning of fall, we’ve introduced Family Fun Mornings at the Aquarium with lots of fun things to see and do for young budding aquatic explorers – and grownups too!
To start your morning off right, we’re offering free Salt Spring regular coffee in our Café for a limited time from 10 am until 11 am daily. Don’t forget to pack your favourite travel mug to help us reduce the amount of to-go cups that are used! After you’ve enjoyed your cup of coffee, join our interpretive team as they lead an interactive and education family program in our lower Tech Engagement Gallery. The program changes week to week and includes a variety of fun activities including crafts, puppet shows, games and sing-alongs.
Next, go on a wildly hilarious 4-D Adventure with SpongeBob SquarePants: the Great Jelly Rescue. Join SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy as they rescue the Jellyfish of Jellyfish Fields from Plankton’s evil clutches. With eye-catching 4-D effects, guests will surf through the electrifying swarm of Jellies, get dragged into the bowels of the Flying Dutchman’s ghost ship, and even feel the rumble of the cannon as our heroes are launched on their hysterical odyssey.
Be sure to check out the newly revamped Clownfish Cove where children eight and under learn by play to wonder at and care for our oceans. It features a new animal rescue centre, a seaside dock with “underwater” tunnels to explore, touch tables and reading nook.
