Business overview

Get Up Close!!

Marvel at fascinating creatures from above and below the waves! Come face to face with sharks, sea turtles, stingrays, dwarf crocodiles, jellyfish, clownfish and the very cute otter family.

Fall head over flippers in love and waddle with playful Humboldt penguins whilst getting up close and personal with inquisitive Inca terns.

Watch the water come alive while penguins, otters, sharks and sea turtles grab a bite to eat during our daily feeding talks. Stop for a refreshment break during your visit and enjoy spectacular panoramic views from Bay View Terrace (exclusive to Oceanarium visitors) or the Offshore Café. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a souvenir from the Cove gift shop.

we come here every year, we have seen the turtle,otter and penguin talks, all very interesting, the penguins seemed very happy at their new home, swimming around and playing. The gift shop is also very nice, always buy ornaments from there
