Enjoyed the jellyfish and seahorses in particular in the indoor exhibits. Touching the stingrays was a unique experience and we got to see them being fed. It was a very cold day so we didn't linger too long at the outdoor exhibits, but did enjoy the arctic foxes, huge walruses and the feeding of the polar bears. Would have enjoyed this experience more in milder weather, and with our grandchildren. The advantage of going in November, however, is that it isn't crowded or noisy!

Had a nice 2 hour journey of the aquarium. Large outdoor areas with polar bears, walruses, seals, owls and a family of arctic foxes.
Jellyfish & seahorses are well kept & good varieties. Touch pools for kids are available with stingrays, sea urchins, sea cucumber etc. Freshwater & seawater sections have a reasonable varieties of local fish . Small sections on frogs & amphibians. Can bring your own water bottles to refill near the toilets.

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 for kids, and the property is attractive with some nice landscaping. A couple of hours is adequate to enjoy the property.

I'm from Montreal and I heard about that aquarium and as soon as I saw pictures of that hallway with water and fish all around I knew I had to give it a visit. It's a small aquariums with different little buildings with themes. It's quite nice and has a quiet place. If you plan on visiting go around 12pm to make sure you could assist the little shows they have going on. I don't regret a second ! Just make sure you know that it's not that big. My other favorite place was dark rooms with different lighting and there's jellyfish just swimming around.
