The National Marine Aquarium is an eyepiece to the Namibian marine environment for Namibians and visitors alike. It was inaugurated by His Excellency Dr. Sam Nujoma, in 1995 and has since then fascinated approximately one million visitors!

The main display of the aquarium is the oval tank with a capacity of 320 000 liters of seawater and an eight meter acrylic viewing tunnel.  It hosts most of the Namibian angling fish species, such as cob, galjoen, steenbras and kolstert.  Intertidal specimens are displayed in 17 smaller exhibits.

For those seeking a more interactive experience, the aquarium also boasts with a Ray tank, where people are encouraged to touch these magnificent animals.
