About us

Visit the UK's largest Aquarium and be amazed by our fascinating underwater world and how we all play a part in conserving it.

The National Marine Aquarium is a registered charity committed to promoting a sympathetic understanding of the sea through programmes of education, conservation and research.

Your journey will take you across the world's oceans, from the shores of Plymouth to the coral reefs of the tropics. We have over 70 sharks from more than ten different species. The sharks on display range in size from the small dogfish to the large Sand Tiger Sharks. Our hosts deliver an action-packed talk schedule, including our not-to-be-missed interactive dive show at 2:00 pm daily.
