Blue Reef aquarium is on the small side but does however make a great attraction especially when its raining.
I first visited the aquarium with my mum as she loves fish and she truly enjoyed the aquarium.
Considering the size of the aquarium there is quite a lot to see and explore, there is the fascinating Blue Reef nursery which is host to various captive breeding programmes the baby sea horses are so cute and amazing the children normally love this section.
Also at blue reef there is the tropical paradise this is the centre piece of the aquarium where you can get up close to the tropical fish by walking through a tunnel which is running through the centre of the reef. The tropical waters are home to a variety of sharks, including the graceful black tip reef shark, as well as rays, moray eels and lionfish.
The aquarium is renowned for the visitor involvement sessions where there are displays, informative talks and feeding demonstrations.
There are also many crabs and other species at the aquarium that are bound to fascinate all.
There are some good facilities including Baby changing facilities, toilets, a café and a wonderful gift shop.
