Fun little aquarium, with different areas to discover different species. Felt some of the areas a little tight for the animals. Enjoyed the shows, touching the stingrays, seeing the jellyfish babies.

I personally love aquariums and this one is more than an aquarium. It also has sea lions, white foxes, walruses, polar bears, and more. Take a trip out there!

It is a small place,but neat, not for adults on their own. The company that buses people there picks up at the Frontenac,but should shorten the time allowed.

Although it isn't huge, the aquarium had a lot of unique things to see. We especially enjoyed watching the walruses being fed, the jelly fish room, and the sting rays which we were allowed to pet as they drifted by. It has a wonderful playground...More
