Time to go underwater!

Founded in 1983, Phuket Aquarium underwent total reconstruction at the dawn of the 21st century, and has been open for all waterworld admirers since 2007. All profit raised from visitors is invested into exhibitions and scientific research to support the aquarium's water family. Phuket Aquarium is part of Phuket’s Marine Biological Research Centre, its Department of Marine and Coastal Resources and its Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. The park cherishes and shares knowledge about the Andaman Sea’s rich aquatic flora and fauna.

 

More than 150 species of aquatic fauna have been brought to the aquarium from the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. While the aquarium’s main focus is the research and protection of turtles, it is mostly inhabited by catfish, barb, reef grouper, razorfish, cardinal fish, surgeon fish, lionfish, cowfish and many more, with leopard stingrays and leopard sharks being the kings of this aquatic kingdom.

You will see the water world’s inhabitants in gigantic aquariums, drifting among natural and artificial flora, through rocks, coral reefs, mangle tree jungle and sandy beaches. The Exhibition Centre is divided into two sectors: Sea Life, and Freshwater Fish and Flora. Ten cylinder-shaped fish tanks house the freshwater fish. Take a peek to see electric eel and electric catfish. In another area, dozens more huge tanks provide comfortable shelter for seawater fish. Watch gigantic cod drift along, or try to spot tiny reef fishes in a special tank with a touchscreen information panel.

We recommend visiting the fish feeding show, which happens every Saturday and Sunday at 11 am. You will see a professional scuba diver feeding sharks, catfish and other aquarium inhabitants.

To visit the research centre, follow the path winding from the aquarium café. At the end of the path you will find a quay with a ship, aquariums with growing fish and the Marine Biological Research Centre, which preserves and nutures endangered species of turtles and other sea creatures. Here you will also find special tanks for wounded fish and fish under medical surveillance. The majority of the aquarium inhabitants will be released into the wild later to help support the natural ecosystem of the Andaman Sea. The aquarium gives you a wonderful opportunity to glimpse the world under the water.
