Oceanarium is Bournemouth's state of the art aquarium. Here you will see a large collection of marine life from around the world. Fishes from the Mediterranean, Africa, Ganges and other parts of the world are on display here. North Pacific Giant Octopus, Japanese Spider Crab, Tiger Shovel Catfish, Flashlight Fish and many more are on display. It also boasts of a Marine Research Lab where you can see exotic creatures such as Lion fish, sharks and many rare species as well. If you prefer to be a little more closer to the fishes then go into the interactive Dive Cage. While you get a 270 degree view of various marine animals, you also gain significant knowledge about marine life through the interactive system in the cage. Want to take back a momento, then head to the Cove Shop. Here you will find local souvenirs and also Oceanarium's trademark stuff. There is also the alfresco Offshore Cafe where you can stop for coffee or snacks. A great combination of fun and education.
