What You'll Get

Due to gravity, nonaquatic animals are limited to a single-dimensional plane of movement, with the exception of birds and monkeys who have learned to burrow. Watch animals float up the z-axis with today's Groupon: for $14, you get admission for two adults and up to four children to Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre in Sidney (up to a $67.20 value). Children aged 2 and younger are admitted for free.

The award-winning Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre educates visitors on the Salish Sea ecosystem with enchanting hands-on learning activities and 25 habitats teeming with oceanic critters. Algae, plankton, and jellies greet guests on a video microscope's flat screen in the Gallery of the Drifters, and the wet lab and classroom in the Ocean's Heartbeat exhibit boasts mini ecosystems in microscopes, fish swimming in teachers' desks, and prospectors panning for goldfish. The Gallery of the Salish Sea brims with marine plants and a plentitude of water-dwelling animals such as invertebrates, wolf eels, rock fish, and the world's largest giant pacific octopus lounging in an overhead grotto. After exploring Bite Me, the centre's new exhibit on the Salish Sea's food webs, aquarium attendees can visit the touch pools and mingle one finger with sea stars or teach sea urchins how to knit tube socks for their tube feet.
