It may be cold outside but Blue Reef Aquarium is open all year (closed Christmas Day only) and you are guaranteed a warm welcome – whatever the weather. With naturally themed tropical displays and underwater walk through tunnel, Blue Reef is an oasis of light and colour, even on the darkest days. Surrounded by the crystal clear waters of a bustling coral reef, its easy to forget the winter blues and imagine yourself basking in the sunshine! What better way to relax and unwind than to watch our graceful Black Tip Reef Shark glide effortlessly past, next to hundreds of brightly coloured reef fish.
