Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor
No need to stay home on rainy days when you can have an underwater adventure over at the Blue Reef Aquarium.
Go on a journey through local waters, home to native sharks, ray fish and dog fish to the more exotic, such as the amazing octopus with its three hearts and blue blood, or the incredible black tip reef shark, as you swim through over 40 different displays.
Get the best view of the ocean without getting wet as you wander through the tunnel and see loggerhead turtles and colourful fish swim above your head before spotting the reef fish that dart like lightening around the pulsating coral. Don’t forget to keep your fingers and toes to yourself as you pay a visit to the crabs, lobsters and shrimps!
Stay dry while exploring the ocean!

Expensive - but kids will love it

Whilst it is great for the kids to learn all about the sea creatures it is very expensive for what is in effect an hour long event! worth saving a bit of money and making a day of southsea including the aquarium is well worth it, the kids will love it!
