Following the recent investment of almost £2m at Exploris Aquarium we are delighted to open our doors once again to our visitors. The redevelopment and remodelling of our entire centre which includes our infamous aquarium, touch tank, Seal rescue & rehabilitation centre now boasts a new, improved coffee shop and reptile section. At Exploris we have created a unique tourist attraction and visitors centre in the town of Portaferry, County Down on the beautiful, quaint shores of Strangford Lough. Cafe & Gift Shop Our refurbished cafe area has now become a licensed restaurant, providing space to relax and enjoy some fabulous local produce. The gift shop is full of treasures to take home as souvenirs and memories of your trip to Exploris.
