Located on the lands of the WSÁNEĆ Nations of the Coast Salish Indigenous peoples, the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea is an award winning non-profit aquarium and learning Centre dedicated exclusively to the Salish Sea Bioregion. An amazing opportunity for learning, exploration, and conservation of the natural beauty, ecological diversity, and cultural story of the Salish Sea.

WHERE THE WHALES ARE

An accessible paved path skirting the Sidney waterfront offers unobstructed ocean views. Two piers put observers out over the water for a closer look. Harbour seals are abundant and can often be viewed waiting for scraps from the fish market. Sea lions have been seen thermoregulating and transiting through the area. Transient, or Bigg’s, killer whales are seen several times a year.
