Been to quite a few aquariums but this was fab. Lots of fantastic marine life on show. Great layout and quite a few hands on experiences. Thoroughly recommend, especially if you have kids.

This place is NOT a tourist trap! The name Ripley's sort of suggests it, but this place is definitely worth going when you're visiting Toronto. My local Torontonian friends all have good things to say about this spot as well!

It’s a great place to enjoy the variety species of the ocean, it’s more a place for kids fun, but we also can enjoy.

Loved it! Bit busy but lots to see. Get the citypass to save money when combining with CN tower or other tours.

This was the best aquarium I'd ever been to. The moving walkway through the Lagoon was so cool that we did it twice! If you don't have children, I suggest going early in order to beat the crowds.

You should be fine. Just try not to go on a Saturday because it can get pretty crowded and almost imposible to see all the animals. They have the AC going so no humidity. Enjoy!

Hi, have a great time ! I don’t know exactly where your hotel is located, but I would choose during the day TTC, subway. At night after 8pm, I’d choose Uber.
