Looking for an inexpensive trip for the kids or grandkids over the holidays? Come take a self guided tour at the Field Station! Our resident Grunt Sculpin is feeling rather festive…
Our research labs are pretty slow as staff take holidays and as we clean up and regroup projects for the new year. We’re going to stay open for the most of the holidays however, with a couple of VIU students holding down the fort. That means we will be open to play in the touch tanks, check out the big aquaria and take a self guided tour.
Hours are posted on our calender But basically we will be open from 10-3 everyday from December 26- Jan 2. If weather gets inclement we may have to adjust and we apologize in advance. Driving Directions here (yes we are still working on getting highway signs…soon we hope)
Below are a few of our resident local marine critters and things to see.
Our big display aquaria have changed a lot since this picture was taken – note to self, time to update.
and we invite you to get up close an personal with some local sea creatures in our touch tanks.
and check out the labs from the viewing mezzanine.
