Please note from 13th – 24th November the aquarium will be CLOSED for maintenance. The Sea Mor Aquarium features a variety of marine wildlife found in Welsh waters, including a curled octopus, lobster, conger eel, moon jellyfish, an interactive rock-pool tank and much more! Sea Trust is a non-profit community interest company dedicated to studying, understanding and raising awareness of local marine wildlife. The Sea Mor Aquarium is an excellent resource, enabling locals and visitors alike to get to know and care for the local marine wildlife. To help pay for the aquarium's maintenance, the entrance fee for the Sea Mor Aquarium is £3 for adults, £3 for children under 16 (free for under 2's). As well as our exhibition the Ocean Lab houses Jude's Cafe and shop (entry free) where a fresh cooked food, cakes and drinks are available, and a toddler's soft play area (5 & under). OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 10AM-.00PM Winter 10AM-4.45PM Summer The Sea Mor Aquarium is fully WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE

We have been here many times. It is a lovely place just to sit and have a drink or food. Pleasant atmosphere with a great view and a little shop. Very good on a bad weather day or good weather day. Definitely recommend.

The visit is quite short but the young man who gave us a tour was very knowledgeable, we really enjoyed our visit. Our children had a chance to handle a starfish, and they also proudly put their drawing up after the visit!

Quite small place but certainly worth a visit. They do fantastic work locally and guide was passionate about sea life. Great for family visits.

This place used to be a harmonious collection of small businesses sharing a communal space. The management of Ocean Lab have erected a wooden wall over 8 feet high partitioning the area. I presume there has been a childish territorial dispute. But the monstrosity has...More

I would find this diatribe quite funny if it were not seemingly meant to be damaging. If anyone cares to look at previous reviews there is one in August entitled "confusing". The reviewer says they could not find the exhibition because it was not properly...More
