  • I was here in 2019 and had an amazing experience. This was one of the things we did during our one week stay in Toronto. This was mesmerizing and I am looking forward to taking my family to this...  more »
  • The aquarium was very beautiful, the shark tunnel was amazing, sharks swimming above your head (you could see their teeth).  more »

  • 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 Ripley’s 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.
  • Great place for kids. Lots to check out and some really well thought out enclosures. It’s nice how much interactivity there is. We had a blast and I think we’re due to head back soon, it’s been a while. It can be a bit pricey but there’s usually discounts if you know where to look. We took the train in from Oshawa to avoid parking, worked out great and added to the fun of the day. Fairly educational for all ages, well kept and maintained. A bit dark to navigate if you have issues with vision but I imagine it’s dark for the little creatures comfort and probably helps with viewing the enclosures. Must check out this place if you haven’t been to an aquarium before.
  • The aquarium is a good time. It's got a wide array of aquatic life and ample space to interact and touch some of the animals. Personally did the shuttle crab and stingrays. Didn't get to touch the smaller sharks swimming with rays sadly. Any ways, the displays are nice, the flow of displays is also good, grouping similar species together like all the sea anemones and such. The day you visit will be very important. The day I went was jam packed with people and made moving around a little slow. It was still a great time however. People who like National Geographic and the Discover channel would enjoy walking through this aquarium.
  • 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
  • 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.
