Phuket Aquarium is the only public aquarium in the wider region. It is recognized as a major destination on Phuket Island for both foreign and local tourists and attracts around 300,000 visitors each year! You find us easily at the southernmost tip of Cape Panwa on Phuket Island where we are surrounded by breathtaking scenic bays and islands.

Phuket Aquarium was established in 1983 as part of the internationally renowned Phuket Marine Biological Center (PMBC), a research and monitoring station within the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR).

The aquarium provides a means to communicate research results and to promote environmental awareness.
