Over 40 living displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep; from tropical sharks and lobsters to seahorses and tropical fish.

At the aquarium’s heart is the ocean tank where an underwater walk-through tunnel offers incredibly close encounters with the stunning beauty of a tropical coral reef – home to hundreds of colourful fish, tropical sharks in all shapes and sizes and Omiros the rescued loggerhead turtle.

Other displays are home to everything from giant Pacific octopus, trigger fish and nautilus to cuttlefish, turtles and terrapins. Don’t miss the freshwater Amazon display which is home to a pair of Cuvier’s dwarf caiman.

You can also view a collection of reptiles, and feeding sessions and animal encounters take place throughout the day.
