This underwater bowling alley in Canada feels like you're in an aquarium

If you've ever dreamed of visiting Atlantis, then this dreamy "underwater" bowling alley near Vancouver is for you.

Uncle Buck's FishBowl and Grill is filled with aquatic decor; life-sized sharks dangle from the ceiling, and custom bowling balls are painted with mermaids and octopi.

The wooden bowling lanes will make you feel like you're walking on the deck of a pirate ship.

Even the ball return systems are marine-inspired; you'll have to bravely plunge your hand into the mouth of a Great White shark to collect your ball before you throw your next strike.

Feeling thirsty? You're in luck — the bowling lane boasts an epic blue fishbowl cocktail that will transport you straight to a beach in the Caymans.

Or you can opt for a piña colada, if that's more your speed.

And don't worry about going hungry, because Uncle Buck's also offers a variety of sea-themed snacks, including a fried fish taco and a shrimp po'boy.

Don't forget to look up while you're ordering at the bar; you don't want to miss the impressive battered, barnacle-encustred pirate ship suspensed above your head.

If you're looking to extend your tropical underwater experience in B.C., make sure to check out this epic beach that could pass for the Caribbean on Vancouver Island.
