Phuket Aquarium

Educational Family Attraction in Phuket

Phuket Aquarium offers an afternoon of fun for the whole family, featuring thousands of tropical, colourful and exotic marine creatures. The Aquarium is a hit with youngsters who may not have come up so close and personal with such unusual sea life before.

Over 30 tanks of freshwater and saltwater creatures offer children plenty of time to be fascinated with the weirdness of the undersea world. Cuttlefish hover like spaceships, razorfish look like sinking sticks, and the so-ugly-you-can’t-help-staring stonefish could go by no other name. The diverse selection includes eel, crab, shrimp, sharks, and fish that range from brilliantly coloured to cleverly disguised.

The tunnel at Phuket Aquarium

The star attraction is a large tank with a tunnel through its centre. Inside, you’re surrounded by a kaleidoscopic swarm of rays, snapper, grouper, wrasse, sharks, and others. Show up at lunchtime, say 11am on the weekends, for a bonus of watching the fish devour a meal. Stepping out the end of the tunnel, you’re greeted by massive man-sized cod in the aquarium’s 110-ton tank.

All exhibits are labelled in Thai and English, with interesting facts about the creatures included. Floor-to-ceiling wall displays go into greater detail about marine life, habitats, and conservation issues. Outside the main gallery, a nature trail leads to turtles; lots of them. Large pools contain baby hawksbills and green sea turtles honing their swimming techniques, and injured adults enjoy an early retirement in the rehabilitation area.

Phuket Marine Biological Center (PMBC)

Phuket aquarium is part of the Phuket Marine Biological Center (PMBC) – 8 hectares of prime waterfront on Phuket’s southeast coast devoted to marine education, research, and protection.
