Blue Reef Aquarium offers visitors a local undersea adventure 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 secrets of Solent Seas, the beauty of Tropical Treasures, and the excitement of Freshwater Fun. At the aquarium’s heart is the walk-through Sea of Cortez tank that offers 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 adorable otters 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. Why not grab a bite to eat in the Blue Reef Café? Your admission is valid for a full day!
Open every day except Christmas Day from 10am-5pm with last Admission at 4pm.
