Ripley's Aquarium of Canada in Toronto

Tuesday, August 26, 2014


Last week, after meeting up with my sister and nephew at Boston Pizza for lunch, we headed over to Ripley's Aquarium of Canada for some underwater fun. Located right next to the CN Tower, it was a busy place when we arrived at 2:30 pm. We had pre-purchased tickets online for a 3:00 pm entry to avoid the endless lineup at the door. It was quite busy inside and if I had to do it all over again, I would either go first thing in the morning or around 5:00 pm which is when we left. It just seems less busy then and there weren't any lineups outside. In any case, the aquarium is a pretty impressive addition to the myriad of tourist attractions Toronto has to offer. Here are some of my favourite photos from our day:

Finding Nemo
A lionfish. I think tigerfish would be more appropriate, wouldn't you say?
