The creative team at Aquatopia has collaborated with Ottawa’s most beloved conservationist Paul ‘Little Ray’ Goulet and his nature centre team of animal experts, to bring you the most wonderful, captivating animal experience anywhere in Canada.

Join us for an interactive exotic animal show, featuring creatures such as caimans & alligators, iguanas & lizards, tortoises & turtles, and boas & pythons, while surrounded by the soothing sights and sounds of Aquatopia’s tropical water garden paradise.

After the show, our resident Chef Reshad and his talented culinary team will serve you a delectable luncheon, while you enjoy sipping cool drinks and immersing yourself in a tropical splendour.
