Attraction Details :

Phuket Aqurium  is part of the internationally renowned Phuket Marine Biological Center (PMBC), located on the southernmost tip of Cape Panwa on Phuket Island. It is surrounded by breathtaking scenic bays and islands and is the perfect destination for a family excursion.

Enter the aquarium and find yourself in an amazing underwater world with over 150 different species from freshwater and marine habitats, most of them local species from the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. The aquarium`s interactive displays take you on an environmental journey through rivers, lakes and precious, endangered coral reefs, mangroves and estuaries. All information is provided in Thai and English and includes both common names and interesting facts about the animals.

 The Aquarium makes education fun with its many different displays of marine life, habitats as well as  environmental and conservation issues: Learn about the relationships between the animals, encounter our big guys like electric eels, octopuses, sea turtles and sharks and admire the babies from our ocean nursery like the famous “Nemo” or the cute cuttlefish!

 Another highlight is a walk trough our large tunnel tank: Immerse yourself in the ocean being surrounded by huge sting rays, groupers, wrasses, sharks and swarms of snappers. Reach the end of the tunnel and you are greeted by eight massive man-sized Giant Groupers in their 110-ton tank that have been living in the Aquarium for over 20 years!

 Phuket Aquarium was established in 1983 as unit of the PMBC, a research and monitoring center under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. The Aquarium has developed into a major destination on Phuket Island and attracts about 300.000 visitors per year, including 40.000 tourists.

 Its mission is to increase the public awareness and understanding about marine and coastal environments and to promote the sustainable management of our coasts and oceans.
