About Us

Skegness Aquarium is an exciting family attraction in the seaside resort of Skegness! Based on the story and characters in Treasure Island, you will find our watery world full of pirate adventure awaits you.  Join us as we take you on a journey under water through a fantasy Pirate World of Lost Treasure, Sunken Ships and fascinating marine life, making us one of the top family days out in Skegness.

Our multi-million site is based on the location of the former Panda’s Palace indoor play area and opened its doors in June 2015.  We are a family-owned business, but apply our experience and attitude of international leisure attractions to make the Skegness Aquarium an experience to remember for all those who visit it.  We are not government or charity funded in any way but, since we opened, we have been constantly working and renewing our visitor experience and are very proud to have won the Skegness Business Partnership award for Best attraction 2016

We believe in adding value in all aspects of what we do.  From making sure our customers have one of the top family days out in Skegness, to ensuring that all of our weird and wonderful creatures have a happy and long life with us at the aquarium.  We are one of only 3 aquariums in the whole of UK to offer our shark dive experience

We are proud to have very knowledgable, approachable and interactive staff, who help make your experience a more personal one.  We also own other attractions in the area as well as our fabulous aquarium, and can offer discounted ticket add-ons for these (Cinema, Model Village, Waterway Ride) 

We also work hard to create values of education and conservation of our precious wildlife through specialised programmes and initiatives organised by our expert aquarists.
