Gift Cards + Annual Passes

Due to popular demand, Exploris Aquarium & Seal Sanctuary is delighted to offer annual membership passes and gift cards to Northern Ireland's only Aquarium and Five Star Visitor Attraction.


Exploris Aquarium & Seal Sanctuary has had a fantastic first year and now is the perfect opportunity to update you on some of our key successes to date.

  • 180,000 visitors in Year 1 from across the island of Ireland and Overseas
  • We attained a 5 Star Visitor Attraction from Tourism NI Award (only 11 other attractions in Northern Ireland have received this rating)
  • 5 out of 5 for Food Safety Rating
  • 250+ schools/leisure groups have benefited from our Educational Program
  • 22 Seals have been released back into Strangford Lough via our Seal Rehabilitation Program, with support from DAERA

While also providing a year long program of events for you to enjoy we have also continued to update our facilities here at Exploris, including our soft play area and upgrading of our restaurant/café, while on the educational side we have created our ocean pollution zone to help inform and educate our members and visitors of the significant impact of the tons of waste that are dumped into the oceans and seas.

We continue our seal rehabilitation program and in the aftermath of Storm Ophelia we have been kept extremely busy with some many additional seals needing our care. This project, along with our ongoing education and conservation activity ensure that we continue to receive very positive feedback from our visitors as this helps shape our future development.

Our new Membership package includes a few additions to ensure you have an even better experience when visiting us:-

What’s ever better is that we have retained the membership costs for another year and children (0-2) go free.
