Stop by Ripley’s Aquarium for a day filled with fish, fins, and fun. Nestled beside the CN Tower, the Aquarium is a must-see for animal loving families looking to learn more about our oceans and what swims inside them. With over 9 galleries, there is plenty to see for everyone in the family!

Walking into Dangerous Lagoon brings you face to face with Ripley’s sharks, sawfish, and green sea turtles. The Aquarium also hosts public shark feedings daily, so be sure to check them out if you get a chance. Dangerous Lagoon is Ripley’s biggest exhibit, so it’s guaranteed that there will be lots to see.
This reef offers the most diverse array of creatures at the aquarium with over 100 different species of fish. The diverse colours of the fish could allow for some unique and colourful shots. The Rainbow Reef also holds daily dive shows, allowing kids to learn more about the animals and the eco system they live in.
With an interactive submarine, this is the perfect place in the aquarium for kids. The submarine allows guests to explore the Dangerous Lagoon in more depth without getting wet. The Discovery Centre is also home to the world’s largest horseshoe crab touch tank, so you can check out a Guinness World Record while learning more about clownfish, horseshoe crabs, and several other species of fish who call the Discovery Centre their home.
Home to a giant octopus, an American lobster, and 15 other exhibits native to North America, the Canadian Waters Gallery allows for guests to explore the contents of Canada’s oceans. The gallery hosts octopus enrichment and paddle fish feeding daily, so make sure to check that out!
