Blue Reef aims to take children on a journey to explore the drama of the British coast, the underwater gardens of the Mediterranean and the dazzling beauty of a spectacular coral reef. Over 40 living displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep; from sharks and lobsters to seahorses and tropical fish.

Curriculum Themes – Blue Reef welcomes more than 40,000 school children each year making it one of the largest marine-based educational resources for schools and colleges.

Every visit can include a guided tour or practical workshops with a member of our aquarist team. These tours are adapted to the age and abilities of each group.

A Blue Reef Educational Visit Offers:


• Rockpool Encounter – A chance to get up close to some of our more sturdy Rockpool creatures that we have here on site.

• Shark Workshop – See some genuine Shark Artefacts at close hand; learn all about different types of shark and whether they deserve their man-eater reputations?

• Guided Tour – Take part in an exciting and engaging guided tour with one of our expert aquarists; there are 3 different tours to choose from, all shaped around the current curriculum themes. Choose from:

–          Solent Seas
