My first visit to Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, Toronto

It’s been open for years now, but I only JUST visited the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada in Toronto – as part of Scott’s birthday celebrations. We started off with dinner at Real Sports Bar and Grill, and took a five-minute walk over to the aquarium.

We went for around 8 p.m., for “Sharks After Dark” – an evening adventure around the aquarium. And it’s $5 less at night!

I knew it’d be fun, but I was not quite expecting it to be this well-done! With wall-to-wall aquariums over your head – you get to be right up close and personal with the sharks, turtles and stingray. What a unique experience for anyone visiting the city.

  1. This reminds me so much of the Aquarium in Atlanta, Emily, which I have visited several times since it opened, so I can imagine the thrill for you and Scott. Fabulous images!

  2. Thank you for calling by at my blog and saying hello.

    This aquarium looks amazing. I love the contrast of the pink jellyfish against their blue background.

  4. I’m not sure why but I don’t visit the aquarium as often as I should. When I finally get there I always kick myself for not taking advantage of it. The Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada in Toronto looks AMAZING Emily. Ohhh sharks after dark, now that sounds like fun. Love the pictures! Perfect date night.

    1. I had only ever been to the Vancouver aquarium before, which was nice. But I must say, this one in Toronto — they went all out. Such a special time I had — i do plan to go back 🙂

  5. Aquariums – what’s left when all the reefs have died from acidification. The kelp reminds me of the fictionalised Monterey Bay Aquarium in a certain recent Pixar film.
