This is not much of an aquarium. Really this is for the kids. I was certainly underwelmed. You can pretty much see the same animals in the open tank outside for free.

This Discovery Center has potential, but they have not arrived yet. It is super small. The displays are well done, and there a ton of volunteers to answer questions, but they just have to add some more tanks to make it worth it.

We asked the front desk at our hotel which was better - Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre or The Undersea Gardens. They suggested this one. I appreciate what this place is trying to do, but it is VERY small. They really need to expand to make it worth the half hour drive from Victoria. The other beef I had was that their tanks didn't have labels telling you what you were looking at. On the good side, it was cheap and the kids that were there really seemed to like it.
