Description

Do things go bump in the aquarium at night? Well now is your chance to find out – spend a Night at the Aquarium!

Your evening will begin with a delicious 2 course meal using locally sourced ingredients at the beautiful Portaferry hotel. The hotel overlooks the shores of Strangford Lough which makes it a magnificent setting for evening dinner!

After dinner you will arrive at Exploris Aquarium for a fascinating guided tour of Northern Ireland’s only aquarium. The lantern lit tour will allow you to explore just a fraction of the amazing animals found in oceans, globally and a lot closer to home.
Your tour guide led experience will allow you to delve deep into the UK water – which although you may find grey, dark and boringthey are home to thousands of species. In fact over 2000 species have been recorded in Strangford Lough.

After exploring the waters around you, you will be welcomed to the tropical beaches were you will see displays of fish from as far away as Australia! Be wowed by the large ocean tank as the black tip reef sharks circle above your head and visit the seal sanctuary to hear more about the important work Exploris Aquarium does with vulnerable and injured seal pups.

No visit to the aquarium is complete without saying hello to snappy croc Sobek before entering the dark depths of the rainforest which is filled with snakes, geckos, lizards and dragons to name a few! If you are feeling brave enough there will be an opportunity for a meet and greet with one of these wonderful reptilian creatures!
