Adventure at the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada

Aeryn Lynne

As you may have seen on Instagram or Facebook recently, I had the chance to check out Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada during the week it had first opened.  I was really excited, ’cause I usually make it a point to check out aquariums in every city I visit, so was stoked the moment I heard Toronto was finally going to have on of its own.

The aquarium finally opening its doors to the public couldn’t be timed more perfectly for Jay & I, as we were eager to find something to do to celebrate 15 years of dating each other, lol.

At $30/person, the admission fee is more on the expensive side of things, especially if you’re planning to bring your whole family with you, but I really feel it’s worth it.

Alternatively, if you’re visiting Toronto for a bit and want to visit 5 of our favourite attractions, including Ripley’s Aquarium, pick up a CityPASS and save money for your trip!

Its quite educational, with various stations for adults and kids alike to learn more about what kind of creatures we can find in deep waters.  And if you have a thing for sharks, the Dangerous Lagoon is amazing (and features the longest moving sidewalk in North America. How cool is that?)

It was so awesome, I made Jay go through the shark tanks with me twice, lol.
