Exploris Gift Cards and Annual PassesGeneral Manager of Exploris Aquarium, Ann Moreland, said "There has been a lot of demand for the annual pass to be introduced at Exploris Aquarium and we are delighted that we can now offer this to our visitors. Alongside our membership option, our Gift Card, which partners with our sister attraction at Crumlin Road Gaol, will ensure that visitors can plan many great days out at two of the most unique visitor attractions in Northern Ireland."

The newly opened Aquarium has welcomed over 70,000 visitors to date and just recently, over the Halloween holiday, staged it's first of many events.

Ann commented that "Events are the driver to attract our visitors to both Exploris and the beautiful Strangford Lough destination, and our team have work really hard to ensure that the visitor has a fabulous experience from start to finish. Our restaurant is now licensed and we want to develop the evening economy as this will maximise the impact of Exploris on both Portaferry and the wider Borough.

With our continued development, including a themed soft play area, great events and an excellent education programme we are ensuring that the unique visitor experience is at the heart of all our plans here at Exploris Aquarium."

Exploris Aquarium is open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 5pm with last admission at 4pm.
