Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada

Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, Toronto, Canada (B)

The Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada has been a resounding success since its opening. It pleases both children and adults alike. I have visited other aquariums but none like this one. Its interior lighting design changes the whole experience. The dark halls eliminate all distractions while the giant lit tanks draws our attention. It’s like an underwater cinema. It makes you feel part of the ecosystem.

The aquarium displays over 13,500 species from habitats from across the globe. It’s divided into galleries. Each one represents a different habitat. There’s a number of original attractions besides admiring the underwater creatures. At the Shoreline Gallery there’s a pool where you can touch the horseshoe crab. At the Ray Bay Gallery there are interactive dive shows. But the best show is to watch the animals feeding, specially the sharks.

There are other attractions available for an extra charge. You can snorkel with stingrays at the Ray Bay Gallery. You can join the morning yoga sessions at the Rainbow Reef Gallery. You can even spend the night at the Dangerous Lagoon Gallery under shark tunnel. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
