Come and learn more about some of the natural world’s scariest critters, including sharks, jellyfish, poison dart frogs, deadly lionfish and some special creepy crawlies.  You can even handle some of the creepy crawlies in daily bug handling sessions.  There will be monsters themed tours and talks around the aquarium with interesting facts and quizzes followed by a mask making session in the visitors room.

From the hidden world of UK Waters, Blue Reef Portsmouth transports visitors to the spectacular ‘underwater gardens’ of the Mediterranean and the stunning beauty of tropical waters – home to everything from seahorses and puffer fish to living corals and tropical sharks.

More than 40 naturally themed displays reveal the sheer variety of life in the deep from native sharks and rays to the cute otters and colourful reptiles and amphibians.

The Monsters Week activities are included in the usual admission fee with no extra charge.

    This looks amazing. I have to go to Norfolk to get close to sea creatures – we need an aquarium in Suffolk too.
