COVID-19 Precautions

The Ucluelet Aquarium has implemented the following COVID-19 precautions: 

  • Masks are required while visiting the Aquarium. We acknowledge there will be some exceptions, please ask our staff if you have questions.
  • For animal care purposes, touch tanks are unavailable at this time.  Soap and disinfectants are harmful to the health of fish and invertebrates.
  • A limited number of guests will be welcomed at a time in order to maintain physical distancing.
  • The Aquarium will be a one-way circle around the main pool with interpreter stations along the way.
  • Guests will be asked to wash and dry their hands upon arrival.
  • We ask that visitors be very careful not to touch any tanks or acrylic surfaces. Alcohol based hand sanitizers can damage acrylic tank surfaces, which is very costly and time consuming to fix.
  • We love kids and love their amazing energy! The aquarium can be a very exciting place. We ask that parents pay close attention to their kiddos to ensure physical distancing is respected amongst other visitors.

Please read the Tourism Ucluelet COVID-19 Updates for up to date information regarding visiting Ucluelet!
