Who? All are welcome, just bring your sea legs!


The National Marine Aquarium is the nation’s largest public aquarium and an independent conservation charity. Our mission is to connect us with our Oceans. What better why to connect us with our Oceans than going out on them! Join the NMA on a boat trip exploring the famous Plymouth Sound.
