Located in the VIA|Port Rotterdam Mall, our indoor aquarium celebrates aquatic biodiversity with exhibits, experiences, and public programs designed to connect people of all ages with our planet’s aquatic creatures.

Take your family on an unforgettable journey as you explore vivid underwater worlds across 37 exhibits. Feel the soft, smooth skin of a stingray as they swim right up to your hand in Stingray Bay. Watch sharks swim overhead while schools of fish surround you in our immersive tunnel tanks. From local favorites to the depths of the ocean, explore our planet’s oceans and rivers all in your own backyard on this self-guided exploration.

For school teachers and home schoolers alike our aquarium is a fantastic resource for all your needs. Your students can explore 25,000 square feet of aquatic treasure as your group embarks an exciting adventure visiting over 2,000 creatures of the sea.
