Marine Life Research's EDEN II is an amalgamation of science and entertainment.
Take a trip to the South Pacific, no passport required, no jet lag, only fun. Visit a deserted tropical island with its own living rain forest, a coral reef lagoon with a white sand beach and coconut palm trees, a free flight tropical aviary, exotic gardens and tropical fruit trees along with hundreds of butterflies.
Feed a sting ray in their petting pool, visit the lemur tree and hand feed some of the most brightly colored and exotic birds in our free flight aviary. Visit our butterfly conservatory filled with brilliant butterflies from rain forests all over the world feeding on tropical plants and fruit from our own gardens. Be sure to stop by the insect and reptile exhibits and see what lives in and around a tropical rain forest. Pick up a star fish, pet a sting ray and touch a shark, it's all hands on. No-one will say "don't touch that" here.
With only 10 minutes training anyone over the age of 10 can dive in our 500,000 gal coral reef lagoon filled with sea turtles, sting rays, live coral, giant clams, sea horses and hundreds of brightly colored tropical fish.
No time to see and do it all in one day? We have a special way for you to stay. A very limited number of guests can spend the night at EDEN II. We will only have two cabanas, one right on the white sand beach surrounded by palm trees the other is a tree house in the rain forest. See what a coral reef looks like after dark and spend a stormy night in the rain forest. Book early, this is very limited to make the experience more unique.
EDEN II is more than "just another aquarium" We are a research facility. You are invited to visit our lab, see what we do and even learn a thing or two. Whether you are a Marine Biologist, a budding zoologist, or a "wanna be" horticulturalist, you will learn something new about our world. Marine Life Research is already partnered with other research facilities and hopes to reach out to even more, including some Canadian Universities, to offer their faculty and students the opportunity to visit and join in our research programs. We have a teacher on staff who is developing exhibits which can help meet the curriculum criteria for primary and secondary school student science programs across Ontario.
