Blue Reef Aquarium in Tynemouth is an aquarium located in Tynemouth, England. It is home to over 40 living displays, from tropical sharks and lobsters to seahorses and tropical fish.
At the Aquarium?s heart is a large ocean tank where an underwater walkthrough tunnel offers close encounters with the tropical coral reef fish.
Other displays are home to poison dart frogs, nautilus, toxic toads, turtles, terrapins, and otters.
In Easter 2007 the aquarium opened "Seal Cove". The naturally-themed 500,000-litre pool includes rocky haul out areas and underwater caves along with other environmental enrichment features to ensure the seals are kept in near natural conditions. Large viewing panels and a ramped walkway provide visitors with a unique opportunity to admire their agility from both above and below the waterline.
