The belugas passed away a few years back and they did not bring back any more whales of any kind since they just just signed a lease agreement with the city of Vancouver that prohibits them from having any type of whales on displays for 35 years

I didn't see the Beluga's but I did see the sweetest sea lions, penguins, and playful otters. Be sure to go and see the otters being fed! They are so adorable when it is time to eat and after they eat their antics are absolutely precious!

One of the sea lions in particular is quite vocal and she interacts with people if they try to leave her area.

Fun for everyone!

No, we saw none, and when we inquired about them the staff seemed perplexed that we had expected to even see any. I suspect that it has been quite a long time since there were any, if ever.

The aquarium is still worth the time and admission nonetheless.

"Fisheries and Oceans Canada said it has approved permits for Marineland to move two belugas from the Niagara Falls, Ont., facility to Oceanografic in Valencia, Spain. The Vancouver Aquarium says it owns the two marine mammals that are being cared for by Marineland, and operates the Spanish park where they're being transferred." This is due to a law coming so they have to move them before that.

We certainly didn’t see any and cannot answer where they have gone. Still a very enjoyable experience.
