Oceanarium details...

Situated on Bournemouth seafront in Dorset, the Oceanarium, the Bournemouth aquarium, takes you on an unforgettable underwater adventure around some of the world’s most amazing waters.

Home to thousands of creatures, see stunning sharks, a cunning croc, a magnificent Loggerhead turtle, graceful stingrays, eerie eels, colourful clown-fish, mischievous otters, and the very cute colony of Humboldt penguins!

Voyage around the world and see 11 different naturally themed zones, not forgetting a stop at the fun interactive dive cage and other informative displays.

If you are feeling peckish, why not stop for a bite to eat in the Offshore Cafe or Bay View Terrace and take in the wonderful coastal views.

There’s so much waiting to be discovered at the Oceanarium!

Open daily from 10am (closed Christmas Day). Closing times can vary so check the opening times on their website prior to visiting.
