Now you can swim with sharks in Toronto

Toronto's Lake Ontario is thankfully shark-free. But that can't stop you from getting up close and personal with these fearsome sea creatures.

Yes, Ripley's Aquarium is now offering a Discovery Dive S.C.U.B.A. program in its Dangerous Lagoon - the part of its facility that's filled with sawfish, turtles, fish and of course, sharks.

This 30 minute guided tour happens on Wednesdays at 3 p.m. and it costs $250 per participant. But, according to Ripley's website, it's not open to everyone. "Please note you must be a certified diver, over the age of 16 and complete a medical waiver in order to be allowed to Dive," reads the online sign up page.

If you're not a certified diver, you can always try snorkeling with the stingrays ($120 for two hours). Or, if you'd rather appreciate the ocean's majestic sea life from afar, perhaps the aquarium's Friday Night Jazz events would be more up your alley.
