  • Overview
Voted one of Canada’s best loved attractions and one of the top Aquariums in the world, the Vancouver Aquarium is an intriguing and unforgettable venue to hold your next special event.  We opened our largest expansion in our history in June 2014, almost doubling our event space and increasing our capacity for cocktail receptions to an incredible 2400.

Your guests will discover a world of fascinating creatures in breathtaking spaces.  From formal dining with majestic beluga whales to breakfasts, weddings and cocktail receptions in living art gallery-style settings, the Vancouver Aquarium offers stunning backdrops and contemporary West Coast menus.  Just choose your space and menu, and let us do the rest.

When you host your event at the Vancouver Aquarium, you do more than provide your guest with an amazing experience; you are also supporting a non-profit society dedicated to the conservation of aquatic life. This includes conservation, education and research programs such as our Marine Mammal Rescue Centre, Ocean Wise™, Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup and the Coastal Ocean Research Institute.
