About Exploris Aquarium

Exploris Aquarium is located at The Ropewalk, Castle Street in Portaferry.

This is Northern Ireland's public aquarium and seal sanctuary.

It is sited on the shores of Strangford Lough, a marine nature reserve and area of special scientific interest.

Visitors can view and learn about the marine species that are indigenous to Strangford Lough and the coastline of the island. Marine communities are recreated to enable the visitor to gain a better understanding of the complex inter relationships between different species.

The Seal Sanctuary affords the visitor the opportunity to view the process of rehabilitation of rescued seal pups from their arrival through to full health when they are re-introduced to the wild.
