Are you a certified diver with $250 to burn? If so, you can swim with sharks at the Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto!
The new Discovery Dive program allows certified divers to take a 30-minute guided tour of the Dangerous Lagoon, which includes tiger, sand and nurse sharks along with eels, turtles and other fish species.
The program is on every Wednesday at 3 p.m. and also offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the Aquarium runs, including a tour of the feeding and husbandry areas.
Ripley’s also announced a new Stingray snorkeling experience this week, which allows guests to swim among four species of stingrays and bonnethead sharks in Ray Bay. It runs daily at 3 p.m. for an extra fee of $25.
Both programs need to be reserved in advance. Visit ripleyaquariums.com for more information on these and other programs offered.
