Up Close with Qila

Due to our workload we could not go to Super Saturday at the Vancouver Aquarium yesterday, but today we found a couple of minutes in the afternoon to spend some time there.

Unfortunately, we missed half of Up Close with Dolphins, but were in time for Up Close with Belugas. Luckily for me, I was selected as a random visitor to participate in this show – and got splashed by Qila, one of the lovely belugas. This was such an amazing experience, especially as I could see Qila diving down to the bottom, coming up to the surface, looking at me all the time, and aiming her splash that would hit me – twice! It may sound weird, but I absolutely loved it!

After that up close encounter with Qila, Marcus and I enjoyed watching both belugas showing some of their fantastic behaviours.

In case you were worried, we also spent some time with Jack and Daisy – of course!
