Attraction Information

Meet amazing creatures from beneath and above the waves at Oceanarium.

See over 150 species of fish on your underwater adventure as you journey through the Amazon, Shark Wreck Reef, Asia and Africa. Watch otters frolic at the Otter Oasis, enjoy the fantastic Penguin Beach encounter, spot the terrifying crocodile on Crocodile Rocks, look out for the friendly Loggerhead turtle, and if you’re feeling brave, why not enter the interactive Dive Cage to see the sharks in a different way?

There are talks and feeding times throughout the day, which will tell you more about your favourite aquatic animal and lots of conservation projects to learn about. The Offshore Café and Bay View Terrace are open every day for food and drink and don’t forget to treat yourself to a souvenir from The Cove gift shop on your way home!

Enjoy this all-weather attraction down on the Bournemouth sea front!
