Toronto, Canada

Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada

One of Toronto’s top attractions features the bottom of the sea. With over 1.5 million gallons of fresh- and saltwater, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada features more than 15,000 water specimens from around the world.

The state-of-the-art aquarium showcases the beauty and science of aquatic life. With nine separate galleries, each with numerous sub-exhibits, the aquarium features life from Canadian Waters, Rainbow Reef, Dangerous Lagoon, Discovery Center, The Gallery, Ray Bay, Planet Jellies, Life Support Systems, and Shoreline Gallery.

Up Close and Personal

Dangerous Lagoon and Discovery Centre feature unique viewing opportunities to see underwater creatures. The Lagoon has a moving sidewalk tunnel that goes directly through the main tank, enabling the sharks, sea turtles and rays to swim all around visitors, while the Discovery Centre has pop-up bubbles that visitors can get inside to within inches of the fish exhibits. The Shoreline Gallery includes a touch pool for visitors to feel the texture of live sharks and rays.

Unique Exhibits

The Rainbow Reef displays a Pacific reef, and Planet Jellies is home to one of the largest displays of jellyfish in the world—including unique lighting that allows the jellies to show off their light patterns. For a deeper understanding of aquariums, the Life Support Systems exhibit is a behind-the-scenes look at process and structure that maintains the tanks and sea life for all to enjoy.
