Yes! Everyone who visits the Vancouver Aquarium must reserve tickets online before their visit, whether they are a longtime member or a first-time visitor. Please account for everyone who will be joining you on your visit. You can reserve your tickets here.
We recommend reserving your time slot 48/72 hours before your arrival. This is especially important if you want to visit over the weekend and holidays. Same day tickets are hard to accommodate as we are running at a limited capacity.
The aquarium can get busy quickly. But don’t worry there is plenty of parking available! Please check out our map here. The Miniature Train parking lot (lot B) and the Police Lot (lot C) gives you quicker access out of the park onto West Georgia St and Downtown Vancouver as well as access to the Lions Gate Bridge* and into North Vancouver
The aquarium parking lot (lot A) has accessible parking and electric vehicle charging stations.
*Please note access to the Lions Gate Bridge is closed Mon-Fri from 3:30pm to 6:30pm.
