The Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea, (formerly the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre) is Sidney's award-winning aquarium showcasing the amazing ecosystem of the Salish Sea. Get up close and personal with wolf eels, jellyfish, rockfish, a giant Pacific octopus, and hundreds of other creatures, without having to get wet. While on your self-guided tour, check in with the volunteer Oceaneers who are standing by to answer all of your questions about the local species. Don't miss doing the scavenger hunt, looking into the microscopes, or tickling sea urchin in the touch pool. Weekends are packed with games, crafts and activities that the whole family will enjoy! The Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea is Vancouver Island's third most popular attraction, and is located on the waterfront in Sidney.
