Discover Rays at the Vancouver Aquarium

Event Details

Vancouver Aquarium

Connect with the ocean like never before at Discover Rays at the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre. Featuring an interactive touch pool, Discover Rays gives visitors the rare opportunity to experience first-hand these gentle fishes as they glide beneath the water’s surface, delighting and surprising with their curiosity.

The new, 50,000 litre touch pool is home to cownose rays and southern stingrays, and guests are invited to roll up their sleeves for a unique, hands-on encounter with these exceptional creatures.

Soak up fun facts about the amazing world of rays throughout the exhibit and learn about efforts to conserve their populations. Get an up-close look at the jaw of the shellfish-eating cownose ray. Take a behind-the-scenes peek through a window at the impressive life support systems for the rays and discover how these animals receive world-class care at the Vancouver Aquarium.
