The Aquarium

Explore the depths of the Skegness Aquarium

After starting your adventure with an introduction from our captain, you will uncover the depths of Skegness Aquarium, learning all about the fantastical world of marine life, including fearsome sharks, tantalising octopus and venomous, fishy predators.

The safety of our captain, crew and shipmates (including employees and customers) is our top priority during your visit. Its our aim to make sure you enjoy your time with us and that we can welcome you back again and again.

We have made a number of changes within our attraction to make sure you remain safe. We will continue to review the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and change our protocols as and when the government advise. Below is a link to more information on our approach to the COVID-19 pandemic.

When you arrive

Firstly, we have introduced new capacity limits in the aquarium. These restrictions will help ensure there is plenty of room for social distancing. There may be a small wait but we will do our best to get you in as quickly and safely as possible.

Walk-ins are welcome but to ensure you will be admitted it is best to purchase tickets online. All online tickets must be purchased 24 hours in advance.

Reception Desk

When you have been guided to our reception by one of our crew, you will be asked to stand on one of the floor markings and have your confirmation ready for inspection.

We have installed new hygiene screens at our service counters to help physically separate guests from employees.
