平日でも大人気 Ripley's Aquarium of Canada

Aquarium_00

昨年9月にオープン以来人気が続くトロントの水族館、「Ripleys Aquarium of Canada」。公立学校の春休みも終わりひと段落と思い、お昼過ぎに行ってみました。

Aquarium_25

地下鉄に乗り、ユニオン駅からインドアの連絡通路「スカイウォーク」で約10分。ちょうど水族館の裏手に出ます。外が寒い時はオススメのルートですが、気温が上がってお天気が良くなったら、ユニオン駅正面のフロント・ストリートを歩くと楽しいです。

入り口を入ると正面がチケット売り場。オンラインで買っておけばそのまま進めますが、今回はチケットを現場で買うことにしたので、列に並びます。と言っても今日はほとんど待たずにすぐチケットをゲット。中に入れました。時間が限られた旅行の場合は、事前にオンラインでチケットの購入をお勧めします。
なお、入場券は大人(14歳以上): $29.98、学生(6歳〜13歳): $19.98子供(3歳〜5歳): $9.98、シニア(65歳以上): $19.98で、2歳以下は無料。チケットは時間指定になっています。

オープニングの時に一度入っているのですが、その時にはなかったパンフレット($2)がチケットカウンターに置かれていましたので、試しに買ってみました。カラー刷りで館内の地図と水族館の説明が書いてあるもので、訪れた記念のお土産に良いでしょう。

Aquarium_08

早速中に入ると、家族連れで大変な人。冬季の平日でこの状態ですから、お天気が良くなり観光シーズンが始まったら、かなりな混雑が予想されます。水族館側は、最も混雑するのは週末の午前11時〜午後4時と言っていますので、その時間帯を避けるのも良いかもしれません。

進路は、右回り。入ったら右手の「Canadian Waters」から入り、全体をゆっくり見ると約1時間ほどかかります。

見どころは沢山ありますが、「Rainbow Reef」で2時間おきに行われる「Interactive dive show」は必見。水槽の中にダイバーさんが入り魚に餌付けをするのですが、これがなかなかキレイ。特にダイバーさんが入ってきて、餌となる野菜を持って右から左に移動をするとカラフルなお魚がざーーっと付いて行く様が壮観です。スタッフの説明なども加わり、ダイバーさんが持っている野菜に群がる魚に、子供達は釘付け。

隣にある巨大水槽「Dangerous Lagoon」は、ガラスのトンネルを動く歩道に乗って進む迫力の展示。まるで自分がダイビングをしているみたいな感覚にとらわれます。サメやRoughtail Stingrayと呼ばれる巨大アカエイなどがドームをゆっくりと通り過ぎる様は圧巻。ウミガメがいるようですが、なかなか出てこないので出会えたらラッキーなのだそうです。
ここが終わると、三角形の水槽のある「Discovery Centre」では魚に触ることができるので、チャレンジしてみてはいかがでしょう?

Aquarium_26

そこから少し行くと、クラゲが美しい「Planet Jellies」。今回のブログの写真はすべてコンパクト・デジカメで撮影したものですが、特にクラゲは動きがゆっくりですので、カメラファンの方でしたら被写体としてはなかなか撮っていて楽しいと思います。

ここを抜けると「Life Support Systems」ではそれぞれの水槽の水をフィルターにかけ、最適な温度に保つ機器が外から見る事ができます。事前にチケットカウンターで申し込むと、ツアーにも参加できます(別料金)。

水族館は年中無休。朝は9時からオープンしますが、夜は貸し切り等で早めにクローズする場合がありますので、事前に下記のリンクでご確認ください。
