Ripley's Aquarium of Canada

This aquarium is a must see. It is absolutely gorgeous inside and there is so much to learn. The displays are beautiful and there is an incredible variety of species of aquatic life that will keep you intrigued for hours. The conveyor belt tunnel walk is a captivating experience as sting rays, sharks and a myriad of fish swim around and over head. The staff are top notch and truly are passionate about their professions. This place is also fantastic for corporate events.

I had such a good experience here. There is a lot to see. Lots of information on the species in the tanks. One of my favourite parts is the people mover through a tunnel. Definitely a must see for anyone visiting Toronto and every family. I loved seeing how the water systems as well. I had a great time and for sure will come back again.

I've been coming to Toronto for years and have always had the intention of coming here but never got the opportunity. I brought my wife here for her birthday (it was both of our first times) and we absolutely loved it. The under water creatures are incredibly beautiful. There are so many different stations with all sorts of fish. So many different colours, and you actually learn so much coming here. I would 150% recommend coming here, you will have so much fun

A wonderful day with the family!!! Our young son LOVED all the fishes. The aquarium was well laid out and very educational yet fun. If you go get the timed tickets and plan your time to the shows you want to see. It is very easy to get to from the train which a LOT better than driving. I have to say Ripleys does an amazing job with all the fish the tanks are clean and the fish all look healthy we especially appreciate the fact that they have a number of stingrays and fish that are rescue.

We've been one of the preferred caterers at Ripley's Aquarium since it opened it's doors and it's been a fantastic experience working with Andrew and the venue. Our clients are always thrilled for the opportunity to hold an event at such a unique event space. No need for décor as the venue is the attraction! A real gem and a great addition to the wonderful venues Toronto has to offer.
