To view the entire aquarium you can expect to be there for approximately an hour or two giving you plenty of time to go off and explore the rest of Bournemouth. If you are a little too early to see the feeding sessions then you can leave the aquarium, go grab yourself a drink on the pier and return at the times noted. The ticket you purchase is a day ticket.
There are two Oriental small clawed Otters who are very cute and enchanting. You can watch them feed, play and splash around in their naturally themed oasis.
There is a small cafe and a souvenir shop, which are both reasonably priced. The staff are friendly, informative and helpful. The venue is fully accessible for pushchairs and wheelchair users.
It has been said that the Aquarium is a little over priced for the size of the attraction and the short amount of time it takes to get around. You can expect to pay around £10 per adult, £6.50 for children or family passes are available, different options are available but a family of 4, (2A + 2C) is £26.00. Discounts are available if you book online prior to your visit. You can also purchase annual passes at greatly reduced prices which offer you the option to come back as many times as you wish throughout the year.
The Aquarium is open from 10am daily and closes at 5pm, with last admission at 4pm. It is open all year around, with the exception of Christmas day.
