New Brunswick Aquarium and Marine Centre

Visit the New Brunswick Aquarium and Marine Centre in Shippagan - the largest public aquarium in the Atlantic provinces - and see all the wonders of marine life of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

See the largest collection of coloured lobsters in the world and more than 100 species of fish and invertebrates. A new permanent exhibit, entitled “Dive into Acadian Waters”, features the local fishing industry and the species found in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Plunge your hands into the touch tank, filled with molluscs, sea cucumbers and other astonishing species. See blue lobsters, odd fish, and even adorable Harbour seals that go wild when the dinner bell rings! Watch an audiovisual presentation on the history of the fishery.

Nearby is a lighthouse dating from the 19th century and a restaurant featuring delicious seafood. For more rate information, please visit our website.
