Support the Vancouver Aquarium by shopping online
Although the Vancouver Aquarium is temporarily closed, our Online Gift Shop remains open and is shipping daily, around the world!
If you are looking for a way to support the Vancouver Aquarium during the coronavirus closure, buying gifts from our online store is something you can do while also garnering you “best Auntie” or “best Uncle” points among your nieces and nephews.
The Vancouver Aquarium’s Online Gift Shop has lots of great sustainable toys and homewares for spring – including stuffed animals, jewellery, silicon bath toys, t-shirts, umbrellas, and more.
The not-for-profit Vancouver Aquarium is an initiative of Ocean Wise Conservation Association. Proceeds from the Vancouver Aquarium Gift Shop not only support the animals in our care, but also conservation initiatives including Marine Mammal Research, Marine Mammal Rescue, Ocean Wise Seafood and Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup.
