Join us for a free screening of Great Lakes Now episode, “Ships and Shipwrecks” on Monday, August 26 at 6pm at the Aquatarium during the Big River Brockville in Brockville, Ontario.

The Detroit Public Television Great Lakes Bureau’s Great Lakes Now series is made up of 30-minute episodes reporting on the world’s largest system of freshwater, with in-depth coverage of the environmental, economic and political issues that impact the lakes and the people who use, cherish and protect them. In this episode of Great Lakes Now, viewers are introduced to the CSL Welland, the series of locks that allow ships to bypass Niagara Falls and the men who work on board.

Hear opening remarks from new WPBS President and General Manager, Mark Prasuhn, catch the screening before the premiere on Tuesday, August 27, and enjoy light refreshments.

Event is free, but pre-registration is suggested. Register online at wpbstv.org/tickets.

We have several ways to volunteer at the Aquatarium, each with their own additional benefits and opportunities. We invite you to visit our VOLUNTEER page on the website to learn how you can join our team and become a part of our Aquatarium family for years to come!

Our otters are rescued North American river otters and are not domesticated. As such, they have a different temperament than those you may see on line where people are interacting with otters one on one. Those otters are usually Asian Small Claw otters and are not native to the St. Lawrence river. As there is no safe way to allow people, including our team members, to directly interact with river otters, we are unable to offer close encounters with them.

No. With the exception of our salt water touch tank, all our fish and animals in the Aquatarium are native to the St. Lawrence River area. We have otters, pike, sturgeon, carp, trout and bass just to name a few.

Follow us on our social media accounts (FacebookTwitter and Instagram) which we update regularly.

The experience takes approximately 90 minutes. However, this time will vary from person to person.

We take reservations for weddings, meetings and events. Book your special day with us now, and host your special day at one of the most exciting attractions in the 1000 Islands! Contact our Events Team to discuss all the details at: [email protected]

We feature many types of fish that are indigenous to the St. Lawrence River and the surrounding 1000 Islands area. River otters, various reptiles, amphibians and many more friendly critters call the Aquatarium their permanent home. Ongoing guest speakers and scientists bring in different and unique species for special Aquatarium visits. We list them on our calendar of events so be sure not to miss them!

We are located at the foot of Broad Street in Brockville, Ontario, Canada, right on the waterfront. We are in the first floors of the Tall Ships Landing building and even offer indoor parking off Flint Street.  Our address is:
