About the Aquarium

The Moray Firth is a haven for wildlife and at Macduff Marine Aquarium you will come face to face with all kinds of sea creatures that live beneath the steely blue Moray Firth waters.

The aquarium’s exhibits lead you from the coast, where you can explore the estuaries and the rocky shores, and then to the underwater world of the kelp reef. See the unique kelp reef exhibit and watch divers hand feed the fish. At the sea lab and touch pools you can get a feel for seashore life, before heading out to the deep reef and the seafloor.

Grab a fish finder leaflet at reception and see if you can spot all the different animals as you explore the aquarium. Why not test your knowledge and do the Discovery Quiz just for fun? With your all day ticket, come and go as you like to catch the feeding shows and presentations throughout the day.

The gift shop is a treasure trove of gifts to suit everyone – from kids’ pocket money toys to sea-themed souvenirs. Ice creams and cold drinks are sold here too. You can of course shop without going into the aquarium.

Owned and operated by Aberdeenshire Council, Macduff Marine Aquarium aims to promote awareness, enjoyment and stewardship of the Moray Firth marine environment in an entertaining and educational way.
