Where Toronto - - BEST OF THE CITY -

The best way to avoid the crowds at the city’s busiest tourist at­trac­tion is to see it from the other side of the glass. Divers get a be­hind-the-scenes tour of the fa­cil­ity, where they’ll see the fil­tra­tion tanks, learn how the wa­ter is tested, and visit the kitchen where the shark food gets made (the an­i­mals eat restau­rant-grade seafood). Then, they’ll make like mer­maids and com­plete a halfhour guided dive through the so-called Dan­ger­ous La­goon, filled with grouper, moray eels, sea tur­tles, saw­fish and, yes, sand tiger sharks, which look men­ac­ing but wouldn’t hurt a gold­fish. 288 Brem­ner Blvd., rip­leyaquar­i­ums.com
