The new exhibit is especially designed by Nautilus Creative Services of the UK and involved local contractors K&G Construction along with other local trades people.
The overall cost of the project was €750,000 and a number of jobs were created by this expansion. This is part of Dingle Oceanworld's ongoing programme of bringing the rainforest to the people for both education and conservation.
This coincides with Dingle Oceanworld's 20th anniversary and since its opening in April 1996 over 2 million visitors have passed through the doors.   Oceanworld is now Ireland's largest aquarium.
