Attraction Information

Grab your band of ocean explorers for a daring expedition at Blue Planet Aquarium. Dive above and below the waves and see what you can see... in the sea!
Much like David Attenborough’s documentary, this aquarium gets you right up close to water-bound beasties including over 1,500 fish. If you keep your eyes open, you'll find all sorts of different creatures lurking from octopus and electric eels to stingrays and caiman crocs! Immerse yourself in our breath-taking underwater tunnel and experience large sharks swimming over your head!
Discover the home to one of Europe’s largest collection of sharks. If they can handle swimming alongside a modern-day monster, kids can even opt in for a shark-dive experience. Packages are available for daredevils of different levels and ages. The thrills then continue in the 'danger' zone, Venom, while the whole team can enjoy daily shows at the Aquatheatre.
  • Meet sea creatures in multiple ocean environments
  • Europe’s largest collection of sharks!
