The 1000 Islands Ontario’s Aquatarium
Discover a world of learning right on the banks of the St. Lawrence River!
Welcome to the Aquatarium, a 33,000+ square foot climate-controlled aquarium and discovery centre on the shores of the St. Lawrence River! The Aquatarium is a registered not-for-profit charity whose mission it is to inspire curiosity through enriching and entertaining experiences. We offer a full range of interactions & activities for kids, teens and adults, as guests are encouraged to experience life in the 1000 Islands region. Guests participate in hands-on interactive exhibits as well as seeing many species of fish and animals, such as otters, native to the St. Lawrence River.
We have several replica ships that are found in the St. Lawrence river, as well as amazing experiences such as green screen adventures and a salt water touch tank! We seek to rekindle a passion for learning and engage visitors in the distinctive history, culture and environment of the 1000 Islands.
Come and learn about the complex and varied ecosystems of the St. Lawrence River in the Aquaria displays and Otter Experience, where you’ll get an up-close look at some of the many diverse animals and natural wonders of the region.
