Shell-ebrate Canada 150

August 16, 2017

Immerse your students in a world of 16,000 aquatic animals and discover your own underwater adventure. Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada features North America’s longest underwater viewing tunnel, with more than 5.7 million liters of water and over 100 interactive opportunities. Get up close and personal with four touch exhibits featuring horseshoe crabs, shrimp, sharks and rays, as well as daily dive shows every two hours.

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.

Canadian Waters is the aquarium’s largest gallery, featuring 17 exhibits with creatures from every corner of this beautiful country. As you explore Canadian Waters, you will journey from coast to coast via freshwater wilderness, fisheries and kelp forests. Take in the impressive biodiversity of the Great Lakes—they account for 20 percent of the world’s freshwater habitat. And with three oceans to choose from, it’s no wonder the marine habitats are home to such a variety of flora and fauna.

Canada is famous all over the world for its breathtaking landscapes and resident wildlife, but its waters are an even greater treasure trove of extraordinary habitats and animals. Plan your Canada 150 shell-ebrations with Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada and spend your deep sea adventure connecting with a kaleidoscope of Canadian creatures.
