National Marine Aquarium
Discover an underwater world – starting with the largest native exhibition in the UK – that explores the fish you’ve heard of and the many more mysterious animals that live on our doorstep. As you dive deeper into the Aquarium, our Eddystone Reef tank will blow your mind with the UK’s largest single-tank viewing panel (it’s like a fishy cinema screen).
We are a conservation charity. By visiting us you are helping to protect the marine environment, whilst having a great experience at the Aquarium. You can find out more about what we do in the About Us section of the website.
If British beauties aren’t enough, our Atlantic Ocean tank – home to large nurse sharks, sand tiger sharks and our new lemon sharks – is the deepest in the UK, with 2.5million litres of water. The Atlantic Ocean tank is home to three species of ray – if you see them, don’t forget to take a selfie! We’ve also got fantastic smaller displays, from lionfish to family favourites such as clownfish and some very, very smiley pufferfish.
To finish your marine adventure off, our Great Barrier Reef tank is home to Snorkel the loggerhead turtle, our most famous character, who washed up at Sennen Cove and suffers from epilepsy. Snorkel is also joined by two new zebra sharks that have a really interesting story as they have no father.
