Exclaims Asin, “The experience of walking through the age-old bridge and through those lush green woods is mind blowing. The waterfalls and water bodies only add to its charm. The Douglas Fir trees found in the place are said to be over 1300 years old. Also, these huge Totem poles were a delight. It was amusing and touching to watch this local friend who was also our guide hugging an old tree. He said he hugs that tree each time he visits the place. After spending a wonderful day at Capilano, I took a public transport bus back to Vancouver just for the experience.”
Visitors can learn more about the region's marine life through the numerous exhibits. Its educational encounter programs allows visitors to go behind the scenes and get up close and personal with the animals. This includes feeding, helping train and learning about the habitats and lifestyles of dolphins, Beluga whales, sea lions, sea otters, sea turtles and other sea creatures.
Shares Asin, “The Dolphin show at the Stanley Park is priceless. I wanted to bring one of those dolphins back home. I loved the whales, penguins, seals, jellyfish, moon jellies and even poisonous frogs from the Amazon, which look like tiny multi-coloured baubles. They've created various tanks and environments for the different species.” They also show a film called The Salmon Rush which talks takes you through the life cycle of Salmons. She also picked up souvenirs for the kids back home. Especially stuffed toys for her little five-year-old niece. “I bought stuffed Dolphins, penguins and other sea creatures. It's a great way to introduce kids to marine life.”
