We'll be open every Sunday from 10am to 3pm until 17 December 2017.  The Centre will re-open on Sunday 21st January 2018.  Our Sunday Open Day is a great opportunity for everyone to have a look at what's happening in the Aquarium and share a special experience with family and friends.   Click here to see what's new in the Aquarium.m..            

All our marine life is from the Wellington region. Octopuses, Seahorses, Blue Cod, Groper and loads more are always on display.  Our most popular exhibit is the "Touch Gently Pool" where visitors are able to have close-up encounters with some of the marine animals in our care. 

Open Sundays are  also an opportunity for children to show their parents what they've been learning during their class visits to the Island Bay Marine Education Centre.


Visits to our Bait House Aquarium are hosted by knowledgeable and dedicated volunteers to help visitors learn more about the marine life they're seeing.
