  • Best Aquarium I've ever visited. The place is beautiful, very well structured, with a variety of fish, jellyfish, sharks. It's all very well organized, clean, I recommend visiting.

  • 1: This aquarium is great! 2: If I remember correctly, there is a mini kind of rail of the JAWS for children, so there were thinking... (this is very rough) 3: There are giant screens of jellyfish and it is really beautiful. Good fun family time. If you go there with your kids, it's worth... The baseball stadium and the CN tower the next.

  • Ripley's aquarium is an awesome place to bring young kids and have lots of fun. The unique playground there is great for little, and big kids to play. They have many hands on activities that let you touch, play, and learn about the animals and the Ecosystems they follow. There is a neatly organized information desk that is very helpful. There are many sharks and multi- coloured fish. The variety of colours will amaze you, it looks like a beautiful watercolour painting, but even better! The fish flow so elegantly with there different types of patterns, colours, spikes, and shapes.Ripley's aquarium sell food and drinks like, coffee, chips, and all different types of soda's. Over all the staff is welcoming and nice. The staff keeps this wonderful place clean and tidy. Ripley's aquarium is awesome, but because of that, this place is often packed especially during the holidays. So if you decide to go take the whole family and head on a wonderful adventure filled day. I think this place is worth the money and time to see the extraordinary fish, sharks, and diagrams, it is truly an adventure.
  • Great place to visit, even for adults! I went here with my boyfriend and had an amazing time. The aquarium was gorgeous and there was ample space to walk around. The gift shop stuffed animals weren't too pricey which was really nice. Small ones were about $9, bigger ones about $20. They don't take complete advantage of you at the gift shop like other attractions. They also have a cafeteria that serves wine and beer halfway through the exhibit. We had a great time!
  • A lot of fish. Nice aquarium. Super clean and nice. Front desk is well organized and decorated with small aquariums. Its a really nice place to visit an spend some time together. Good for kids as they will have lot of fun but its as fun place for all ages. variety of sea creatures are there to see. Crab, shark, jelly fish are there also.
  • I'm generally against such places - on par with a zoo - animals belong on a protected wildlife reserve with acres of free space to roam / swim in. That being said, this place was rather spectacular. Loads of massive aquariums with all kinds of sea life. Highly interactive. Amazing to walk through / under the expansive shark tank. I do still wonder if the creatures are truly happy (sting rays having their barbs removed for safety reasons).
  • Great aquarium with lots of various species to see! The facility is state of the art and staff were very friendly! Definitely worth taking the UP from the airport if you have a long enough layover, plus you get a 20% discount in your entrance fee. Felt like a great way to spend the afternoon, the displays were interactive and very informative. Close walk from Union Station and right by the CN tower, great central location. I’ve been to a few aquariums now across the states and Canada and this one definitely stood out! A must see if you’re in the area, if you’re not than make plans to be!

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
