About

Dive in at Penguin Ice Adventure and marvel at the cheeky antics of our Gentoo penguins, before meeting a crab or starfish at our Interactive Rockpool.
 

Discover the majestic jellyfish, take a peek at our Asian short-clawed otters and experience the 4D Cinema before venturing into the depths of the rainforest to encounter deadly piranhas and poison dart frogs.

Plus you can now dive in to a world of slime, stingers, and brainless jelly in Jelly Invaders! Wonder at their graceful gelatinous shapes bobbing through a glittering underwater wonderland and uncover their mysterious abilities, including despite having no brains or bones, these dazzling creatures are resilient survivors, even outliving dinosaurs! What jellyfish secrets will you uncover in the ocean's hidden depths?

The new state-of-the-art £multi-million marine rescue facility is now open and Sealife Centres two newest additions – forested seals have taken up residency in the newly engineered environment which spans 2 floors of the attraction.  With multiple touch points and observation decks from land and sea, the live working rescue facility serves a dual purpose in also becoming a tactile viewing encounter where visitors can be educated and immerse themselves in the underwater world.
