Located in downtown Toronto, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada features exhibits like the Rainbow Reef, Canadian Waters, Ray Bay and Planet Jellies, among others. Families will enjoy the Discovery Centre, which brings the aquatic experience to life with up close and personal areas for guests. For a special visit, sign up for a more interactive activity like the Stingray Experience, which allows families to enter the water with the animals. For younger visitors, Wednesday mornings features special marine-themed activities for kids ages 2 to 3 years.
The aquarium is open daily from about 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., with special hours on select days each month. Purchase tickets online and in advance for discounted admission prices.
