Macduff Marine Aquarium

Marine Life Centres

11 High Shore, Macduff, Aberdeenshire, AB44 1SL

    On the beautiful Moray Firth coast, this fascinating aquarium features hundreds of local sea creatures from the rocky shores to the kelp reefs and beyond.

    See exciting and interactive displays at Macduff Marine Aquarium, situated on the scenic Banffshire Coast and featuring the marine life from the Moray Firth, Scotland's largest bay.

    The fascinating exhibits lead the visitor from coastal estuaries, cliffs and rocky shores, out to the leafy kelp reefs and beyond to the sandy seabed. On the way, meet hundreds of local fishy characters, from wolf fish to jellyfish. Get a feel for seashore life at the touch pools and catch special talks, feed shows and quizzes throughout the day. Don't miss seeing the feeding frenzy when divers jump in with the fish in the central kelp reef tank. It's splashing fun for all.
