Immerse yourself in the enchanting aquatic world, situated right next to Bournemouth Pier. With more than 1000 creatures, the Oceanarium hosts an array of spectacular sea species including rare loggerhead turtles, mesmerising jellyfish and a range of stunning sharks, as well as the unmissable colony of Humboldt penguins and cheeky otter family.

Tickets are valid all day so you won’t miss the regular talks and feeds. Plus you can pay a visit to the kids play zone, one of our eateries; the Offshore Café or Bay View Terrace and explore The Cove shop! There’s so much to ‘sea’ and explore, whatever the weather!

Many of our buses stop in Bournemouth Square - in the centre of Bournemouth Town Centre - a short walk away from the Oceanarium. These include, but are not limited to, the m1m2135070X1X2X3, and X6. Use the Journey Planner on our website or app to plan a journey to Bournemouth today.
