Filled with over 5.7 million litres of water, visit Ripley’s aquarium to view over 20,000 sea dwelling specimen covering 450 species. Opened in 2013, the aquarium has several exhibits from around the world. Explore the ‘Canadian Waters’ for a glimpse into the country’s own underwater wildlife. Enjoy the dive show at the ‘Rainbow Reef’ exhibit to interact with animals from the Indo-Pacific regions of the world. Check out the largest aquarium, ‘The Dangerous Lagoon’ for sharks, stingrays, and sea turtles. Learn about crustaceans and other sea animals at the ‘Discovery Centre.’ When you are done with all of the exhibits, go behind the scenes at ‘the Life Support System’, which peeks behind the curtain of the entire aquarium’s control room. Located right next to the CN tower, Ripley’s Aquarium will not be hard to find. There are also duo-attraction passes covering both the tower and aquarium for a day filled with beautiful sights and exotic sea creatures.
