Toronto’s Roger Centre is filled with things to see and do.  These include the CN Tower, Roger Centere, and Ripley’s Aquarium.  We’ve always been fans of Ripley’s Aquarium and have visited the Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, SC at least twice, so we decided this would be the place to start.  Plus, this would give me a chance to really test out my photography with my iPhone 7Plus.  In case you didn’t know, I have challenged myself to taking all my photos with only an iPhone 7Plus camera.  So far, I’ve been pleased although sometimes I’ve regretted forgetting my tripod at home.  


The Toronto Ripley’s Aquarium is considerably larger and has many more features than the Myrtle Beach location.  Firstly, the underwater moving sidewalk area is extensive, has at least 4-5 large sharks, a massive sea turtle, and is teeming with a great variety of fish.

For the kids, this aquarium has some really fun tubes that take kids (and adults) through spaces that can be viewed by other people, making it look as if kids are inside the water with the fish!  The underwater viewing includes an underwater submarine where kids suddenly pop up unexpectedly and it appears they are in the sub under the water exhibit!  Fun!

This aquarium includes a large jellyfish exhibit featuring unusual jellies and lots of bright color changes.

Of course, all the other typical creatures from the sea are included in the exhibits, but the one that caught everyones attention was the gigantic octopus exhibit.  The creature was immense–and honestly, really creepy! 

We loved this aquarium and I recommend you visit the next time you find yourself in Toronto!
