(3/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Explore the great bodies of water around the globe at Oceanarium, which features ten recreated environments, including the Amazon, Key West, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Great Barrier Reef. This site is home to the world’s first Interactive Dive Cage, submerging visitors in a 270-degree virtual view of the ocean. Take advantage of the aquarium’s interactive touch technology to come up close to computer-generated sea creatures, such as dolphins, green sea turtles, clownfish, piranhas, octopuses, manta rays, and sharks. This unique underwater experience features an encounter with a blue whale that swallows the entire cage, taking visitors on a journey through its fascinating digestive system. Tickets are valid all day long, with nine daily feeding presentations and many other special activities included. Using our custom trip planner, Bournemouth attractions like Oceanarium can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
