Trip Report Ucluelet Aquarium

Jump to last reply

The new permanent Ucluelet Aquarium is now open and fantastic, especially if you have kids. It is small but packed with fish and creatures from just outside the door. It is amazing how colorful and tropical West Coast sea life is. They have small tidal pool type tanks kid height that are hands on so that the starfish etc can be picked up and touched by little hands.

Today we watched as they fed an octopus his daily meal of crab.

If you take the Francis Barclay (Lady Rose) from Port Alberni as a day trip I saw people coming off with coupons to get into the Aquarium so I guess there may be some kind of a package deal as they stop in Ukee for 1 1/2 hours I think.


The best thing about this place in my opinion is that everything is changed every 6 months, so the fish are only in captivity for six months and then released again.

The staff are all biology students from UBC and very helpful and knowledgable to old folks like us as well as the kids.

Smileys just reopened as well and they have a billiard table and bowling alley in there. The new community centre has a small movie theatre in it as well that shows movies on a sporatic basis. You need to check the local paper to see whats on

Ucluelet is becoming a happenin place.
