Over 40 living displays reveal the variety of life in the deep at Blue Reef Aquarium Tynemouth. A range of creatures are on view including stingrays, tropical sharks, otters, frogs and seahorses. A naturally-themed seal cove includes rocky haul out areas to ensure the resident harbour seals are kept in near natural conditions. A tropical Amazonian rainforest environment features tiny pygmy marmosets and cotton topped tamarins, as well as iguanas.

The attraction also runs a Marine Rescue Centre in partnership with the animal charity Pawz For Thought to provide emergency care for stranded seal pups and other marine life.
