Fisharama

ripleys aquarium of canadaMore incredible sea creatures from our visit to the Ripley's Aquarium in Toronto. It's a magical place, filled with sights from an underwater world that most of us will never get to visit in person.


The Aquarium uses 5.7 million litres (1.5 million gallons) of water showing marine and freshwater habitats from around the world. There are over 13,500 different ocean species to look at here, including jellyfish, tropical fish, seahorses, and stingrays. There's a predatory shark display with sand tiger sharks, largetooth sawfish, some as long as 12 feet.




The Aquarium is well worth a visit, but it's not cheap! And it's a busy place. We went on a weekday, but I can imagine it is even busier at the weekend. The grandchildren loved it and they are still talking about their trip to see the fish.
