Fodor's Review

North America's largest aquarium is sleek, angular, watery blue, and shaped like a shark. It contains more than 450 species of marine life spread out between 45 exhibit spaces. Maintaining their philosophy to "foster environmental education, conservation, and research," Ripley's also lives up to its reputation for providing a wow-inducing entertainment venue. One exhibit simulates a Caribbean scuba diving experience complete with bountiful tropical fish, coral reefs, and a bright blue sky above. Although the focus is on Canadian marine wildlife, sharks are a dominant theme: you can wind your way through tunnels that take you right into the almost 80,000-gallon shark tank, which houses at least six varieties of sharks. The shark pattern on the roof is an unexpected treat for visitors peering down on the aquarium from the top of the CN Tower.
