Otter Oasis

Watch our adorable otter family swim, splash, feed and play in their naturally themed oasis.

Please note - Essential maintenance work is being carried out on the otter enclosure, however you can still see our otter family cuddled up or playing in their holt right next to their enclosure.

Following a £150,000 investment, this naturally themed display which is home to our very cute Oriental small clawed otter family was opened in May 2011! Set in a lush bamboo forest with rocky pools and flowing streams, you can watch Stan & Roxy swim underwater, splash, feed and play in their luxury home, and see their otter juveniles Mo, Jess and Sophie (born August 2012) learn, develop and enjoy all their new experiences!

They are the Oceanarium’s first mammals and are a fantastic addition to the ever-growing aquatic family – you will love them!

See the pups make their TV debut back when they were very young in 2012 here.

Aquarist for a day


The health of our aquarium family, which includes our visitors, staff and animals, is our top priority. In light of the most recent announcement from the government, we will be temporarily closing the Oceanarium at the close of business on Wednesday 4th November for 4 weeks, with a plan to reopen on Thursday 3rd December 2020.

Please be assured that our dedicated keeper team will continue to provide the best care for our animals during the closure.

We’ll keep you informed through our website and social media channels. We apologise for any disappointment and thank you for your patience.
