Renaissance Vancouver Hotel Harbourside Offers Under-the-Sea Enthusiasts an Exclusive Aquarium Hotel Package

The birth of Baby Beluga at the Vancouver Aquarium in June has sparked the Renaissance Vancouver Hotel Harbourside to create the exclusive Sea-It-All Aquarium Hotel Package at the property.

On June 10, 2008, Qila, a 12-year old beluga whale gave birth at the Vancouver Aquarium. While the pregnancy lasted 15 months, Baby Beluga emerged, tail-first in only minutes and quickly swam to the surface to take her first hearty breath of air.

As of August 11, three generations of the beluga family were reunited at the main habitat of the Arctic Canada Exhibit after two months separated to allow for mother and daughter to bond. Still unnamed, Baby Beluga is growing by the day and is ready to receive her first visitors.

For a limited time, guests of the Renaissance Vancouver Hotel Harbourside can take advantage of the Sea-It-All Family Package in Vancouver, and will enjoy the following inclusions:

  •     Deluxe accommodations for up to four people
  •     Passes to the Aquarium for up to two adults and two children
  •     Full breakfast buffet for two adults and two children
  •     Rates from $299 CAD
  •     Valid through October 31, 2008

The perfect "edu-cation" for the start of the new school year, this waterfront hotel in Vancouver, BC is making learning fun while on vacation in British Columbia.
