Vancouver Aquarium

The Vancouver Aquarium is attractive to all ages. Let's go there and enjoy the incredible marine life, and get inspired to do some drawings/sketches. We can meet inside the main entrance at 10:30am, but you can come and join us any time later than that. The ticket price is $25 for adults, $18 for students and seniors. We could have fun for a whole day, and there should be a cafeteria in there for coffee and lunch. The aquarium closes at 5pm.
As always, bring your favourite sketching materials and a sketchbook.

    Hi Becky and everyone else. I popped in for a while this morning - rather late as I ended up driving the scenic route around the park to get there. I ran into two other people who were both on their own. I had to leave at noon for another appointment though. I'm glad I took the time as there was LOADS of wonderful inspiration to sketch. I'm thinking of going back again when I have more time. Happy holidays everyone.

      You could get a membership for $65 a year if you want to go there three or more times/year. :)

      I thought about getting a membership, but then started thinking about when I might get back there, and I'm not sure how many times I'd actually go.

    I enjoyed it. Lots to sketch, but the weird lighting made it hard for me to choose paint colours. I'd love to go back again when I have more time.

      Glad you enjoyed it, Misti! It's so big in the aquarium, so I missed you. See you next time! :)

    Just looked at my ticket... 4.25pm. Very tempting and I think I might be able to squeeze it in, but I will probably end up looking at my watch all the time since I will have to be at the airport at about 2, hence leaving much earlier. So I will have to give this a miss. I will be thinking of you all. :) But see you at the brewery on Saturday.

    Thanks for setting this up, Becky! I can make it by noon.

    I am sorry but I don't support Zoos or aquariums nor place where they have live animals and ppl have to pay to get in. Pls watch " The black fish" and "The cove"

    • Ricki

      Can understand where you are coming from, for large mammals... that might 'hold water', but there is a lot of emphasis on educating the public, including research to benefit the eco system. The entry fee is a minor to defer costs of maintaining the facilities.

  • Moses 'Mosobot' C

    I don't have the money for this.

    December 12, 2013

    • Sigrid

      We don't often do things that cost money, so there will be plenty of other sessions coming up where there is no entry fee. But in the winter, we may be visiting the odd museum so we can draw indoors. Obviously, that is not going to work for everyone, but we try to have some variety, so watch for upcoming sessions, cheers!
