    Ripley's Aquarium is Canada's largest indoor aquarium - Immerse yourself in a world of 20,000 aquatic animals and discover your own underwater adventure in the heart of downtown Toronto. Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada features North America’s longest underwater viewing tunnel with more than 5.7 million litres of water and over 100 interactive opportunities. Get up close and personal with several touch exhibits and soak in a live dive show daily. This awe-inspiring attraction consists of nine carefully curated galleries showcasing a cross section of saltwater and freshwater environments from around the world – starting with species from Toronto’s backyard, the Great Lakes basin.
    Ripley's Aquarium offers nine galleries to explore, including the following.
    Canadian Waters Gallery: Have you ever wondered what lurks beneath the surface of the Great Lakes? Explore 17 habitats that spotlight the diversity of Canada's treasures.
    Rainbow Reef: Be swept away to an inviting oasis, where an explosion of color mesmerizes with this vibrant collection of tropical fish.
    Dangerous Lagoon: An exhilarating experience that begins in an underwater tunnel, weaving through the gallery to see many different species of sharks.
    Discovery Centre: Pop into the underwater viewing bubbles to get a closer look at pufferfish and clownfish, and be sure to touch a bamboo shark or a 'living' fossil in the horseshoe crab touch pool. You can also grab a quick bite to eat at Ripley's Cafe here.
    Ray Bay: Watch with wonder as graceful stingrays glide through the water. Experience a live dive show, which will give you a glimpse into their world.
    Planet Jellies: With eight different tanks featuring jellies surrounding you on all side, this transfixing gallery delights with color-changing displays.
