Season 4 is coming to a close!
Catch and Release
OUR ANIMAL RELEASE PARTY WILL BE HELD ON SATURDAY OCT 1
The best part about the Mini Aquarium is that we release the animals back to the ocean where they were collected. Bid a fond farewell to our marine friends as you help us return the animals to the sea. It's the perfect ending to another season of aquatic awesomeness!
Watch the 2014 release video below and be sure to participate in this year's event!
During the summer months we are open 7 days a week, from
10 am - 6 pm (up to and including Labour Day).
Be sure to include us in your summer fun, and Plan your visit now!
WE WILL BE CLOSING TO THE PUBLIC ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25.
From September 6th until season closing, the Mini Aquarium will be observing reduced fall hours. We will be closed to the public on Mondays and weekday mornings. We will still be accepting morning school group bookings during the weekdays, and will be available for evening scouting and guiding visits.
