Ripley's Aquarium Of Canada - Review
5.7 million litres total tank volume. 13,500 marine and freshwater animals representing 450 species. Those numbers should be enough to excite you about the aquarium, one of the Ripley franchise’s better investments. But if you need more incentive, here are some exhibits you might light:
- Canadian Waters: 17 habitats commonly found in Canadian waters.
- Rainbow Reef: The most brilliantly colorful tank, filled with the denizens of the Indo-pacific.
- Dangerous Lagoon: The most popular exhibit - the deadly creatures walkway tunnel. Lots of sharks.
- Discovery Centre: Kid centred exhibit with touch pools, submersibles and underwater viewing bubbles.
- Mother Nature's Art Gallery: Tanks of the ocean’s weirdest but still beautiful looking creatures.
- Ray Bay: Three species of stingray.
- Planet Jellies: Pretty self-explanatory
Beautifully presented, the convenient location location of the aquarium makes it a great place to either start or end your day. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Toronto Itinerary 7 Days.

Ripley's Aquarium Of Canada, Toronto Reviews
I was not prepared for what I was about to experience the evening we visited Ripley's Aquarium. We loved it, what an amazing adventure! This was the highlight of our visit to Toronto. Such a beautiful and stunning display of aquatic life, and the exhibits are all extremely well done and informative. There is an abundant variety of sea life to see and learn about. Plenty of activities to take part in and children's play areas that entertain and educate. We enjoyed it so much we didn't want to leave. The very end of the exhibit is at the top of the aquarium where it opens up and many of the fish can swim up. When you reach that point, if you see any stingrays come to the top, stick your arm in the water, don't be afraid, you'll get a wonderful surprise...
Incredible architecture of gorgeous and very modern aquarium in the heart of Toronto. Amazing sea world, over 16000 species, different fish brought from all around the world could be seen there. Hundreds of gorgeous displays light up while admiring different species and listening calming music. Shark tank is so impressive as well as all other amazing spices. Walking around sea world feels almost like you are at another planet. So mesmerizing, relaxing and very enjoyable.🐋🐳🐬🐟🐠🐙🐋
Has earned its place amongst downtown Toronto’s featured attractions. Can be enjoyed alone, on a date, or with the kids (great place to take kids). Takes about an hour or so to get through. Some people have remarked that it seems smaller than expected, so take your time to enjoy the well crafted displays and exhibits. It does get pretty busy, so order your tickets online first. Make sure to check out the top of the stingray tank, the rays swim right up and let the kids pet them. To me, these stingrays really stole the show with their playfulness and interactions.
This is an alright aquarium that I don't feel it's worth $35 per adult. I've been to other aquariums that are much larger and have more to see. It'll be best to find deals and discounts and to go then. We had spent about 1.5 hours in the aquarium and if you read every plaque you'd be able to stretch out the amount of time you spend. Enjoyment also depends on the time of day you go and how many other people and their children are around. We had gone late in the morning on a weekday and I suppose there wasn't as many people as there could have been. However, there was enough that the screaming children that dimmed the experience for me. Also, lots of crowding around tanks makes it hard to see what's going on and having to wait until those people have had their fill and move on to the next tank. One of the best parts was going through the moving walkway to see the sharks, fish, sting rays and a turtle swimming around. Some of the other tanks were too small for the large fish to move around in. It was kinda sad to see them so stationary. I could stand watching the jellyfish float around for ages. They're fascinating to watch. Another highlight was touching the sting rays. They're smooth and feel almost velvety.
The aquarium is awesome. Admittedly it was really packed on a Saturday but that is too be expected. Despite the crowd we were able to see everything and it was easy to move around (even with a stroller). Lots of great creatures and exhibits to see. There is a kids area that my niece and nephew loved. Staff were so friendly throughout the visit. Buy your tickets on advance online though as line ups at the door seemed really busy, whereas we just walked right in.
