Portsmouth’s award-winning Blue Reef Aquarium offers visitors a dazzling undersea safari through the oceans of the world. Situated on Clarence Esplanade, between the two piers overlooking the busy Solent, Blue Reef Aquarium is a great place to visit whatever the weather.
Explore the drama of the British coast, the underwater gardens of the Mediterranean and the dazzling beauty of a spectacular coral reef. At the aquarium’s heart is the giant ocean tank where an underwater tunnel offers incredibly close encounters with puffer fish, triggerfish and hundreds of vibrant tropical fish amid the beauty of a recreated coral reef.
Over 40 other living displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep, from tropical sharks and stingrays to giant lobsters and elegant seahorses.
If the sun’s shining then don’t forget to bring your towel and a bucket and spade to make the most of the aquarium’s outdoor Blue Reef Beach Club and Splash Play.
Other features include giant stepping stones, a picnic area, grassed sundecks, pebble beaches and a variety of other outdoor activities. Refreshments are also available during the main holiday periods.
Open every day except Christmas Day from 10am-5pm with last Admission at 4pm.
On school holidays last admission is 5pm, closing at 6pm.
