From the heart-pounding experience of Dangerous Lagoon, a football-field length glass viewing tunnel with moving glide-path sidewalk through sharks, green sea turtles, sawfish and moray eels; to the hypnotic dance of Pacific sea nettle jellyfish which illuminate an array of breathtaking colours from within one of the world’s largest kriesel tanks at Planet Jellies, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada captivates Torontonians as well as guests from around the world!

The Aquarium features over 100 interactive and educational opportunities, including daily dive shows and feedings. Get hands on at our touch exhibits featuring horseshoe crabs (which are also known as living fossils), sharks, rays and cleaner shrimp!

Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is proud to be Canada’s largest indoor aquarium offering a variety of special programs to help celebrate Canada and our 150th birthday!

Let’s dive a little deeper into each special program…

Save Our Canadian Waters!

Canada is famous all over the world for its breathtaking landscapes and resident wildlife, but its waters are an even greater treasure trove of extraordinary habitats and animals.

As you explore our Canadian Waters gallery, you will journey from coast to coast via freshwater wildernesses, fisheries and kelp forests. Take in the impressive biodiversity of the Great Lakes – they account for 20 per cent of the world’s fresh water and are an essential part of Canada’s freshwater habitat. And with three oceans to choose from, it’s no wonder our marine habitats are home to such a variety of flora and fauna.

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup:

Looking for a different kind of adventure to help give back for Canada’s 150th birthday? Join us for our Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup on Sunday June 11th!

Every year, the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup cleans over 3000km of shoreline across Canada, removing almost 1 million garbage items! With over 28 Olympic sized swimming pools worth of plastic pollution entering Lake Ontario last year, this issue is near to our hearts!

Help us celebrate the beauty of our country and help keep our water healthy! Click here to find out more information and register for our shoreline cleanup.
