Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor

Visit Macduff Marine Aquarium and get to know the amazing marine creatures of the Moray Firth. Meet all kinds of underwater residents - from those who live by the rocky shores, to the ones you can find only in the waters of the kelp reef.

The aquarium has a unique kelp (brown seaweed) reef exhibit - drop by and watch professional divers feed the fish every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. We know kids like to get involved too, so take them to the touch pools where they can get up-close with some hardy seashore creatures.

Turn your visit of Macduff Marine Aquarium into a game. Pick up a fish finder leaflet at reception and watch the kids go for it, as they try to spot all the different animals. Up for more fun activities? Take the Discovery Quiz and find out who has the best animal knowledge in the family.
