Ripley's Aquarium – Toronto, Canada

During my weekend filled trip to Toronto, I had the pleasure of exploring the aquarium (which is conveniently located right next door to the CN Tower).
My friend Hannah and I spent about 2 hours walking through the aquarium and attended a feeding in the Rainbow Reef – which I would suggest seeing. I have been to many aquariums before and they all tend to be the same – but there was one exhibit that I could take my eyes off of and it was the jellyfish! I believe I have over 200 photos that I snapped while exploring that area and its mind bending how the colors change and just watching them move so gracefully through the water.

Below is my photo journal through the aquarium:

        Oh my gosh, yes. Even just in the pictures–I can only imagine how amazing they are in person. I think I just added a to-do for this summer: take my kiddos to an aquarium 🙂

    Hi Nicki,
    Captivating jellyfish shots! I love seeing ’em in aquariums. I hate seeing them in oceans LOL. Always out of the water immediately whenever I see 1 or more jellies in the sea. Had a horrible sting on the foot in Costa Rica. Methinks it was a jellyfish that put me in bed for 3 days, unable to put any pressure on my right foot. Gorgeous creatures though.
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Hi Ryan – That is crazy. I am always scared of that happening .. part of why I don’t like to get into water I cannot see. I live by the Chesapeake Bay and it is known for having a lot of them.
      They are quite striking to photograph in the aquarium though. 🙂
