Find out what you can do to help save our oceans at National Marine Aquarium, the country's largest aquarium.

This self-funded facility is dedicated to research, education, and conservation, and aims to raise awareness about the challenges our oceans face today and the ways in which we can help to ensure their future. Interactive dive shows are available daily, along with educational talks, presentations, and free activities designed specifically for families with small kids. Check the website for special events and advance ticket options.
