An Unforgettable Ontario Getaway

At the Aquatarium, join us on a unique, customized adventure for a day trip, a weekend getaway, or a once-in-a-lifetime special event!

The Aquatarium offers a full range of interactions & activities for kids, teens and adults, as guests are encouraged to experience the 1000 Islands region as it’s never been seen before. From hands-on interactive exhibits to personal encounters with native wildlife, the Aquatarium seeks to rekindle a passion for learning and engage visitors in the distinctive history, culture and environment of the 1000 Islands.

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.

Through our interactive explorations, you’ll discover the history and culture of the St. Lawrence River and 1000 Islands region. Visit the past in the Magedoma yacht’s cabin, which uses high definition video to send visitors on virtual historical adventures. Then, sail back in time in a reconstructed 18th century warship and get a fish’s eye view of the legendary Keystorm shipwreck. How many other Ontario getaways can take you on a voyage through time?

You’ll explore river transport with the SS Kingston and see firsthand how the river generates hydroelectric power at our Power of Water discovery experience. And for those who can’t get enough science, we even offer unique classes in our Water Lab, where participants will perform fascinating experiments and even build underwater robots. Put your nautical science discoveries into action at our Ropes Course, where you’ll experience what it’s like to climb through the rigging of a 1000 Islands tall ship. There’s even a 40-foot “plunge” vertical AquaDrop!

And don’t forget to plan future 1000 Islands and Ontario getaways at our 20′ interactive Wall Map, where we’ve joined with our RiverQuest partners to help you discover even more attractions in the 1000 islands to explore! These interactions & activities and more await you at the Aquatarium, one of the newest and most anticipated Ontario getaways available.
