Family Fun at Blue Reef Aquarium

Take the ultimate undersea safari at the Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay; it is a great day out for all the family.

Enjoy close encounters with seahorses, sharks, stingrays, giant crabs, turtles and hundreds of other incredible aquatic creatures. Explore the dazzling beauty of a coral reef and journey through the spectacular tropical ocean display in a transparent underwater tunnel. Over 40 living displays recreate amazing undersea habitats from local waters to exotic seas. Informative, entertaining talks and feeding displays take place throughout the day.

‘Meet the creatures’ sessions are run daily where visitors can enjoy hands on encounters with a variety of sturdy rockpool animals such as crabs, starfish and sea cucumbers.
The Seahorse Ranch is new for 2007. The spectacular new column shaped display is home to dozens of seahorses offering visitors the chance to observe these magical fish and the fascinating way they interact with each other and their marine environment.

Blue Reef has a busy calendar of special events to keep the whole family entertained. During the 2007 season you could follow a treasure trail during Pirates Weekend, learn more about deadly predators, sign up to help save sharks, take part in a beach clean or create a piece of fishy-themed artwork for October’s Big Draw.

Children’s birthday parties can be held at the aquarium, themed parties are a particular favourite and include Pirates Party, Shark Party and Mermaids Party.
