A BRAND NEW experience that will AMAZE and leave you in AWE of the fascinating creatures that live beneath the water!

Join one of our keepers as they take you on an IMMERSIVE journey behind the scenes through the aquarium.

You’ll have the amazing opportunity to feed some of our most interesting and endangered fish, including our big bellied seahorses, the elephant nose fish and the upside down jellyfish!

Enjoy interacting with our brittle starfish, stroking the buffalo leeches and admiring their cocoons, training the clownfish and even getting your hands cleaned by our wonderful Omani blind cave fish!

This is a one-on-one experience with the keeper which gives you a brilliant opportunity to ask all your questions, learning about the realities of life in the wild and what we do here to protect these species from extinction.

There’ll be lots of opportunities for photos along the way and you’ll also leave with an exclusive gift, an experience certificate and memories to last a lifetime!
