Located on the breathtaking Sidney waterfront on the traditional lands of the W̱SÁNEĆ Nations of the Coast Salish Indigenous peoples, the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea is Canada’s only aquarium and cultural centre dedicated exclusively to the learning, exploration and conservation of the Salish Sea Bioregion. As the only aquarium on Southern Vancouver Island, the Centre displays the natural beauty and ecological diversity of the local Salish Sea through 28 aquarium habitats holding over 160 live marine species and over 3,500 animals including a giant pacific octopus, wolf eels, and pacific salmon. The Centre is also home to a rare, fully-intact killer whale skeleton, a unique collection of Coast Salish Indigenous art, a fun ‘hands-on’ Touch Pool experience, and a Salish Sea Store with one-of-a-kind, locally sourced and environmentally friendly arts, jewellery and crafts.
