Adoption

Whether you're looking to treat yourself or buy a gift for someone special, adopting one of the aquatic animals from Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium has the advantage of giving both the gift giver and the recipient the satisfaction of knowing they are helping to provide the best possible care for all our aquarium's creatures.

How about surprising the kids with their own adopted sea creature? They will love it! Whether you're looking for an inspirational birthday, anniversary or Christmas present idea, the recipient is sure to enjoy the experience of a visit to the aquarium and the unique opportunity of being able to interact with the creature they have adopted.

Adopt Finn the mullet fish - only £35

Finn is the aquarium mascot and was the first of our mullet to take food by hand. He certainly is a trend setter as it wasn't too long before all his friends followed. As Finn is such a special fish, we have made him available to adopt.

With adoption you get many benefits including multiple entry to the aquarium.

The Finn adoption package includes:

  • VIP membership which entitles the holder to 3 visits to the aquarium
  • During visits adopters will be able to hand feed Finn and his friends and will also get the opportunity to interact with our other creatures including getting up close with a lobster and holding a starfish.
  • Adopters names will appear on our adoption roll of honour on our website
  • Attractive presentation folder
  • Welcome letter
  • Personalised certificate of adoption
  • Fridge magnet
  • Keyring
  • Sticker
  • Adoption lasts 12 months from the date of purchase.

    Adoption packs will be sent out to the specified delivery address within one week.

    Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium determines which creatures are available for adoption, and details may vary at the Aquarium's discretion.

    Adoptions are valid for 12 months from the day of purchase.

    Please allow 7 days for delivery.

    Adoptions can only be listed under one name or entity

    No refunds are given. If the adopted species becomes unavailable in the middle of an adoption term, you may choose another eligible creature for the remainder of the term.
