TORONTO - Visitors to Toronto may not be able to swim with the sharks on Bay Street but they'll have an up-close view of the ocean predators in a new indoor aquarium.
After two years of construction, delays and $130 million in costs, Ripley's Aquarium of Canada opened to the public Wednesday.
The aquarium, billed as the country's largest, is home to more than 13,000 aquatic animals and 450 different species held in nearly six million litres of water.
More than 10,000 tickets to the downtown facility have already been sold online.
