Blue Reef Aquarium Hastings offers visitors a dazzling undersea safari through the oceans of the world.
From the hidden world of UK waters, Blue Reef transports visitors to the spectacular 'underwater gardens' of the Mediterranean and the stunning beauty of tropical waters home to everything from seahorses and puffer fish to living corals and native sharks.
The centrepiece of the aquarium is the spectacular coral reef housed within a gigantic ocean display with its underwater walk-through tunnel.
Enjoy the closest of undersea encounters in a 15 metre long underwater walk through tunnel through the reef, from inside a glass cavern and via the large ocean window.
More than 30 other naturally themed displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep from crabs and rays to the amazing octopus and turtles.
Blue Reef is a great place for visitors of all ages to find out more about the wonders of the deep. There's a full programme of entertaining and informative talks and feeding displays throughout the day.
Blue Reef also has a busy calendar of events to keep the whole family entertained. You can follow a treasure trail during Pirates' Weekend, learn more about protecting seahorses, sign up to save sharks, take part in a beach clean or create a piece of fishy themed artwork.
