Ripley's Aquarium of Canada, Toronto, ON

Gord and I went to Ripley's Aquarium of Canada this afternoon.  This is the fourth time I've gone since it opened in 2013 and it's a fun and interesting spot to spend a couple hours.

More than 13,500 underwater creatures from around the globe are on display. Exhibits include Tropical Reefs, Atlantic and Pacific Ocean Habitats, Jellyfish, Seahorses, Stingrays, and Great Lakes exhibits and much more. The aquarium holds 5.7 million litres (1.5 million gallons) of water.

From the majestic Kelp forests of Canada’s Pacific Northwest to the spectacular colour and abundant life of a Tropical Indo-Pacific reef, to the frigid Baffin Sea to the flooding waters of the Amazon, the aquarium covers all waters of the world.

This is when we first went in, looking down at the children's play area with a small restaurant attached.

There are lots of small and big tanks.  There's so much to see!  Here is some of what we saw ...

There is a moving sidewalk
Me crawling through one of the tunnels in a tank ...
this little girl was ahead of me and got scared for her daddy
Gord crawled through one of the tunnels in a tank
Me in a bubble in a tank
The sea nettles are a good spot to sit and watch
Gord and I

Before you get to the exit, there are stingrays you can pat and a gift shop.

This is above one of the tunnels.  We got there around feeding time and there were lots of hungry fish!
