Pier Approach, West Beach, BOURNEMOUTH, BH2 5AA

Located on Bournemouth's picturesque seafront, with twelve naturally themed environments, take a magical adventure around the waters of the world and come face-to-face with hundreds of fascinating creatures. Visitors can stroll underwater through the Great Barrier Reef, venture through the Amazon and 'dive' to the depths in the Abyss. From rare green sea turtles, stunning sharks and beautiful seahorses, to eerie eels, menacing piranhas, cunning crocs and the mischievous otter family - they are all waiting to be discovered. The newest addition to the ever-growing aquatic family is a colony of playful penguins. Fall head over flippers in love as they dip and dive in their beach retreat. To compliment their marine adventure, visitors can relax in the Offshore Cafe or Bay View Terrace, both offering stunning views across the coast.
