What's not included

Food & drinks
  • Get hands-on with native species; tickle the belly of a small shark and feel the spikes of a sea urchin
  • Let kids run free in Jiggly Jellies, a two-tier aquatic-themed indoor soft play area with slides, ball pits, and swings
  • Meet a family of Asian small-clawed otters and visit rehabilitated seals in the Seal Sanctuary

Northern Ireland's only aquarium and seal rehabilitation centre is packed with an animal posse that Noah, of Ark fame, would be proud of.

The colourful coral reefs in the Tropical Ocean zone are home to over 100 species. Stroke the belly of a baby shark (be gentle!), watch rehabilitated seals living their best lives, and even learn the Viking history of Strangford Lough!

Kids can explore interactive stations and fill in a special expedition passport for a special treasure at the end.
