Blue Reef Aquarium

Enjoy close encounters with incredible creatures from around the world at the award-winning Blue Reef Aquarium in Tynemouth.

Explore the drama of the British coast, the underwater gardens of the Mediterranean, the beauty of a spectacular coral reef and the exotic features of a tropical rainforest! Living displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep; from clownfish and seahorses to tropical sharks and graceful stingrays. There are adorable monkeys including tiny pygmy marmosets and comical-looking cotton topped tamarins. There are otters and seals too.

Seal cove is an outdoor facility which provides a home for Blue Reef’s resident harbour seals and a pair of Californian Sea Lions. The 650,000 litre naturally themed display features everything from underwater caves to rocky haul out areas. Giant viewing panels and a ramped walkway provide visitors with an unrivalled opportunity to admire the seals and sea lions grace and agility from both above and below the waterline. Discover all about vital work caring for injured marine life in the marine rescue centre.

As well as innovative displays, informative daily talks and feeding demonstrations, there's an ever-changing programme of special events and exhibitions throughout the year from Pirates Weekends to Shark Week – click here for more information.
