City Aquarium

Come and explore an underwater world at City Aquarium! There are hundreds of amazing sea creatures for you to see!



Sharks have lived in our oceans for over 400 million years. Some sharks are big, some are very small and some are very scary! Don't miss the sharks' feeding time at 3 p.m. every day in our shark zone.



Most penguins are from the southern hemisphere, and some of them live in one of the coldest places on Earth: Antarctica. Watch our playful penguins dive and swim in the icy waters of our penguin zone!



Turtles have been on planet Earth for over 200 million years. But today some species of sea turtle are endangered, because of hunters, fishing nets or plastic in the ocean. Come and see these beautiful creatures in our turtle zone.
