What we offer on a school trip
Macduff Marine Aquarium is situated on Aberdeenshire's northern shores and, as well as being an award winning visitor attraction, it is a popular educational resource for students of all ages and abilities.
The aquarium takes visitors on a journey of discovery beneath the steely blue waters of the Moray Firth. The exhibits lead from the coastal estuaries, cliffs and rocky shores, out to the fringing kelp reefs and beyond to deeper reefs and the sandy seabed.
On the way, visitors come face to face with hundreds of local fishy characters, including fearsome wolf fish, small sharks, ancient lobsters and gentle jellyfish, all in realistic and innovative displays.
Visitors can also see divers feed the fish, get a feel for seashore life at the interactive touch pools and watch breading seabirds on the cliffs at Troup Head via a live camera link during the summer months.
