Owner description: Now open all year! Visit the Sea Trust's Sea Mor Aquarium at the Ocean Lab, Fishguard Harbour and see what lies beneath the waves in the harbour and our Pembrokeshire coastal waters. Watch our video of whales and dolphins including footage of a "super-pod" of common dolphins we filmed off the Pembrokeshire coast. 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 plus a mini-museum display of local cetacean species and much more! The Sea Trust is a not-for-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. We also run school events, including sea-shore safaris, where children are shown and discover the hidden wildlife right under their noses on the beach. 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) - £1 per child, parental supervision required. OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 10AM-4.00PM Winter 10AM-4.45PM Summer The Sea Mor Aquarium is fully WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE

Reviewed 26 April 2014

This is a small fantastically run attraction in Goodwick. Run by a dedicated group of volunteers who are passionate about the local marine environment. There are several tanks on view showing you the local sea life and there is a knowledgeable member of staff on hand to guide the less informed through! There is a small gift shop, cafe and a video presentation about the dolphins and porpoises that live in the area. I visited with three girls, 12,12, and 13 and they really enjoyed it and happily engaged with the staff and remembered lots of facts about the dolphins later that day. Well worth a visit with any age group to raise awareness on local wildlife and conservation.
