Ripley's Aquarium of Canada Virtual Tours

What To Expect

Our virtual tour experience consists of both pre-recorded footage and live Q&A sessions. We chose to use pre-recorded footage in order to provide guests with a more comprehensive experience. This footage highlights things, such as feedings and aquarist conversations, that take place behind the scenes; we would otherwise not be able to guarantee these experiences.

We are working with our Education and Conservation teams to provide add-ons for this experience, such as in-depth tank talks and science experiments. For special requests or questions, please email experience@ripleys.com.

GROUP TOURS

Do you have a group of 10 or more and want to dive into one of our virtual tours? We can happily accommodate your group and can even cater the experience to your needs! The chart below details our Basic Group Tour and Premium Live Stream offerings. You can virtually visit two galleries or tour the whole Aquarium, even add on time or a live behind the scenes experience!
