What is there to do?

If you're curious about what's underneath the ocean, you don't have to even get wet to see the amazing creatures that reside there!

The Aquarium of Niagara is a wonderful experience for the family where you can explore the wonders of the ocean - it's pretty amazing! There are a number of creatures that call the Aquarium home, including cute sea stars, curious penguins, and colorful fishes - both saltwater and freshwater. 

You may even see some pretty unusual creatures such as the sea horse!

The Aquarium of Niagara isn't just a fun experience for the family, but it's also an incredible learning experience, especially for kids. There are wonderful walk through opportunities where you can be fascinated and educated, with panels and fun facts on everything that you are seeing.

In addition, there are also fascinating behind the scenes tours, animal feedings, and training sessions! Have you ever seen a Sea Lion get trained? Just visit the show! Have you ever wondered what it takes to run such a place as an aquarium? Take part in the Behind The Scenes tour!

You can even experience unforgettable encounters with sea lions and penguins too. Now that's not something you get to see everyday!
