Oceanarium

Pier Approach West Beach Bournemouth BH2 5AA

Slap bang on the seafront, this great aquarium houses an impressive array of marine life from colourful, tropical angel fish to giant turtles. Its tanks are divided by habitat with a Mediterranean tank, a deep sea section and a Florida mangrove pool. The vast Great Barrier Reef tank is particularly impressive, with a walk-though tunnel where you can gaze at turtles, sharks and stingrays swimming above your head. Check out, too, the baby otters in the Otter Oasis display.
