Explore Ripley’s Aquariums virtually, from the comfort of your own home, and learn all about the amazing animals of our world’s waters!

In light of the evolving situation unfolding around COVID-19 and following advice from government health officials advising the practice of social distancing to flatten the curve, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada has made the decision to temporarily close. During this closure, we will continue to provide round the clock care to our animals and facility upkeep.

Until we welcome you back, we encourage you to learn all about the amazing animals of our world’s waters through our collective Ripley’s Aquariums online resources*.


From the comfort of your own home you can learn how the sharks that live in Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada’s largest exhibit, the Dangerous Lagoon, are fed, go for a walk with the penguins at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, or even, meet the mermaids of Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach!

Allow Aquarium education staff to be your guide to live feedings, educational encounters, story time, and much more! And, check out the downloadable animal activities and crafts – available for students preK-grade 8.

Ever wonder is sharks sleep? Tune into the LIVE shark cam in Ripley’s Aquarium Dangerous Lagoon to find out!

Be sure to keep up-to-date on the daily lives of Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada’s 20,000 aquatic animals by connecting with us on Facebook and Instagram.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support of Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada’s mission to provide a world class experience that will foster education, conservation, and research, while providing fun and entertainment for locals and tourists of all ages.

We look forward to ‘sea’ing you again soon!
