When it comes to providing students with a memorable day out, Portsmouth’s Blue Reef Aquarium really is in a class of its own.

The aquarium, overlooking the bustling Solent, offers a host of educational opportunities for all ages and abilities; from pre-school through to A-level including vocational studies such as leisure and marketing.

As well as being a great day out, a visit to the aquarium will help develop a wide range of new skills.

Students can observe aquatic creatures from around the globe in naturally-themed habitats recreated with the use of our innovative displays.

Open top tanks guarantee really close encounters with our rays and multi-level displays ensure unrivalled views for visitors of all ages.

Highlights of any visit include the indoor otter holt, our tropical sharks and the spectacular ocean reef display, complete with its own underwater walkthrough tunnel.

More than 40 other naturally-themed displays are home to everything from crabs and lobsters to octopus, seahorses, jellyfish, piranhas and poison dart frogs.

Plus our dedicated team of aquarists are always on hand to provide in-depth knowledge and experience to make your visit truly personal
