Atlantic Ocean

Dive deeper into the UK’s largest tank.

Our massive Atlantic Ocean exhibit is the deepest tank in the UK, holding a whopping 2.5 million litres of water! The animals that call the Atlantic Ocean home range in size, from tiny Angelfish all the way up to huge Sand Tiger Sharks. 

The walk around the tank means you can view all of the amazing animals from three different locations. Starting in the Moon Pool tunnel and ending up in the crowd pleasing ‘Demi Tunnel’, with stunning views of the entire tank. 

Don’t miss…

‘Friday’, the cheeky Green Turtle

Friday the Turtle loves showing off to our visitors and having a good look at you. He loves feeding time and can sometimes be seen chomping on some cauliflower.

Our sharks

We have five species of shark in this tank, all with their own unique adaptations. Why not have a look and see if you can spot the differences? 

The National Marine Aquarium (NMA) is the UK’s largest aquarium, located in Britain’s Ocean City, Plymouth. It is run by the Ocean Conservation Trust, a charity dedicated to connecting people with the Ocean.
