A special occasion has been marked here recently at the Oceanarium, Roxy the mum of our Oriental small clawed otter family celebrated her 3rd birthday!

Roxy was born on 23rd June 2010 at our sister attraction Blackpool Zoo, and photos of her as an otter pup even feature on our interp boards in Otter Oasis. Although we can’t guess which one she is. Can you?

The health of our aquarium family, which includes our visitors, staff and animals, is our top priority. In light of the most recent advice from Public Health England and the government, we will be temporarily closing the Oceanarium Bournemouth effective immediately, until further notice.

We apologise for any disappointment and inconvenience caused.

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

If you’ve booked tickets for any day during this closure, you can exchange them for any other date in 2020 or we can provide a refund. Please send your booking details to

We’ll keep you informed through our website and social media channels. Thank you for your patience and we really look forward to welcoming you back to the Oceanarium when we re-open. Stay safe everyone.
