Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre delights visitors of all ages with an array of thalassic exhibits that showcase the complex ecosystems of the Salish Sea from the shore to the sea floor. An expert staff of Oceaneers facilitates tactile meet-and-greets in hands-on touch pools between guests and the scaly, squishy, and spiny anatomies of numerous subaqueous denizens. Navigate the Gallery of the Salish Sea, which showcases a plenitude of local marine life including rock fish, wolf eels, and wolf eels in rock fishes’ clothing, or cobble together a hermit-crab-shell stethoscope to explore the Ocean’s Heartbeat, a wet lab and classroom equipped with microscopes and a desk full of fish. The Deep Dive! Deep Discovery! exhibit runs through October 2011 and chronicles the evolution of oceanic exploration, taking a look at how diving gear is advancing and where it started.

Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre's youth-admission prices vary by age.
