The Niagara Aquarium’s goal is to teach about aquatic ecosystems through interesting exhibits and displays. It is not a very large aquarium, but each display serves a purpose. When we arrived we were welcomed with an outdoor demonstration and explanation of Harbor Seals, which were rescued due to injury, and are now cared for at the aquarium. We learned some interesting facts about the seals in each particular situation and why they were rescued.
We entered the building and made our way first to the penguins. I find penguins fascinating! The way they waddle makes me laugh and it is amazing to see how quickly they swim. Just across from the penguin exhibit, we saw the California Sea Lions. When we went up to the next floor, we saw the Sea Lions from above their open pool. That is where the feeding and demonstrations take place. Visitors can congregate around there and enjoy the show. There is also a plethora of fish and invertebrates including Clownfish, Sea Horses, Brook Trout, Sharks and many more types of fish.
Admission to the Aquarium is included in the Encounter Niagara Pass if you choose to purchase it. The Trolley ride is also included in the pass and makes it easy to get to the Aquarium.
