The Ucluelet Aquarium
Canada’s first catch-and-release aquarium
We greet visitors from all over the world treating them to a very personal view of the fish and invertebrates from our local waters in Clayoquot and Barkley Sounds.
The Ucluelet Aquarium is a non profit society. As such, we rely on the generosity of our sponsors to provide educational programs, conservation work, and job training to visitors, our community, and local youth.
From interpretive talks and marine debris surveys to evening events and guest speakers – check out our events calendar for more information!
At the Ucluelet Aquarium you will get an up close and personal encounter with a diversity of local marine life. The touch tanks provide an interactive and fun, hands on, learning environment for children and adults. The displays are full of beautiful, interesting creatures and are always changing. Come and learn about the local marine ecosystems at the mini aquarium, and you’ll agree that there isn’t another aquarium like it!
