  • Great experience. I was walking around Toronto and had a few hours to kill so I decided to walk into Ripley's aquarium and I was pleasantly surprised. They have a great section of fish that are well taken care of. Their exhibits are nice and well taken care of. Their shall tank is impressive and beautiful. It was first time that I had seen a hammerhead shark in person. It was also a first for a Goliath grouper. Overall, it was a great experience and it is a must visit for any traveler.
  • What a great experience! I went with a group of adults and we had just the best time. The actual walk through can be done in about 30 minutes, so be sure to take your time and enjoy the sights and things to see. I have been before with my kids and we had a great time as well but I would suggest that this is a place for slightly older children (6 years and up) as some of the displays and stuff can be a little spooky in the darker parts of the aquarium. Overall the place was clean, and even with a large number of guests there was still enough room to comfortably walk around, stop and sight see without being pushed by a crowd. This is a MUST SEE attraction, so just get there already!
  • The best aquarium that we have visited till date. You can spend hours here and still feel like coming back again. Great place for all ages. Need less to say, the kids had a blast. The walk under the water tank is a wonderful experience, with the sharks swimming all around. Will definitely visit again !!
  • As you would expect, this place is a paradise. If you plan your trip, I would recommend taking time to read up on your some of the animals like the giant octopus named “spaghetti”. But be sure not to use flash photography! The staff at the aquarium was fabulous. Particularly Danielle, who was overseeing the petting tanks. She was eager to teach us/answer questions and it was obvious that she has a deep love and appreciation for the animals. By discussing some of the behind-the-scenes details, I left feeling incredibly confident that the animals are well loved and taken care of. Thank you Danielle for making our visit even more enjoyable.
  • Absolutely stunning place if you're looking for an aquarium. Don't be surprised if you're not impressed when you're not interested in aquatic life. Perfect for children up into the their teens. Even adults like myself can enjoy the immerse aquatic adventure. Tons to do, the aquarium includes a moving floor which transports your through a long tank-tunnel with awesome salt water fish. I counted severally sharks, sea turtles, very large fish and other fun salt water wonders. I highly recommend to anyone visiting downtown from outside the Toronto area. Only reason I gave three stars was the price. It seems a little high for the allotted time slot and what you get from the adult pass.
