About Us

Get up close to Awesome Sharks at Blue Planet Aquarium and see real scuba divers in our daily feed shows in the Aquatheatre. With one of the best collections of Sharks, Fish, Frogs, Spiders and Dalmatian Pelicans – Blue Planet Aquarium is the must see day out for all the family.

Watch the dive team feed the fish - all in front of the sharks at the awesome Aquatheatre window. Get an up close view of the giant Sand Tiger sharks, or nurse sharks, zebra sharks and the smallest sharks the Black Tips. View them from the 70m-long underwater tunnel.

You’ll see the Giant Pacific Octopus in the Octopus lighthouse, see the clownfish and tangs in the coral Cave, and search for the deadliest Stonefish in the Venom section. With over 50 different exhibits from around the world there's something for everyone.
