About Us

The Aquatarium is a registered not-for-profit charity whose mission it is to inspire curiosity through enriching and entertaining experiences. The Aquatarium offers a full range of interactions & activities for kids, teens and adults, as guests are encouraged to experience life in the 1000 Islands region. Guests participate in hands-on interactive exhibits as well as seeing many species of fish and animals, such as otters, native to the St. Lawrence River. We have several replica ships that are found in the St. Lawrence river, as well as amazing experiences such as green screen adventures and a saltwater touch tank! We seek to rekindle a passion for learning and engage visitors in the distinctive history, culture and environment of the 1000 Islands.

Our Gift Shop reflects this, as we carry a variety of items to inspire curiosity and educational fun. STEM kits including solar build kits, small/fidget toys, stuffed animals, bookmarks, river and cottage life themed items, clothing and so much more!
