Vancouver Aquarium Has Live Cams & You Can Go Under The Sea At Home

Just because facilities in Vancouver are shutting down, doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. The Vancouver Aquarium live cams make it so you can watch some of the cutest and most interesting animals from the comfort of your home. If you like otters, penguins, and jellyfish then you've come to the right place: the internet. All these cameras work in real-time and you will feel like you’re really there. 

With everything going on with COVID-19, Vancouver has begun slowly shutting down bars, restaurants, parks, and public facilities. The Vancouver Aquarium is not except from this. 

Even though the doors to the aquarium are closed, the party is still going on inside. 

Luckily for us, we can all be a part of it thanks to a series of live cameras placed in some fo the best exhibits. 

According to the Vancouver Aquarium, you can watch the otters, jellyfish, and penguins right now, wherever you are. 

Everyone knows that the resident otters are basically famous and produce some of the best footage ever. Now, you don’t have to leave your house to see the goods.

If you’re keen on watching the otters then you’re in luck. There are two live cams following these playful creatures — one of which is underwater. 

These little guys are on their own schedule so if catch them sleeping or avoiding the cameras, then don’t be surprised. Eventually, they will swim around and when they do, you’ll be in animal heaven. 

Along with the otters is an epic jellyfish camera. While it may not be your go-to exhibit when you visit the aquarium, the live cam is incredible.

Watching these massive jellyfish swim across the camera is actually so relaxing and it’s exactly what we need right now. 

If you’re looking for more action, then hit up the live penguin cam. 

The little black and white creatures are active and always dressed to the nines. They aren't scared to show off their diving and swimming skills so be on high alert. 

Again, don’t get discouraged if you don’t see them. They may just be napping.

If you fall in love with these animals there is also the option to donate money to the aquarium. All the money will be going towards the animals, research, and rescue missions. 

You can even virtually send a gift to some of the animals at the aquarium because who doesn't need a gift every now and again? 

But the Vancouver Aquarium isn’t the only facility setting up live cameras during the COVID-19 outbreak. 

The pandas at the Calgary zoo are also on live cam and to be honest, they are all too busy eating to notice that no one is there.

Even the Houston zoo has live cams were you can look at elephants, giraffes, rhinos, and gorillas all from your computer.
