About Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary, Scarborough

The Scarborough SEA LIFE sanctuary takes the marine life experience beyond your typical aquarium-ish tours. At the sanctuary, you’ll practically be face to face with feared sharks, timid turtles and spirited seals.

Take an easy paced walk in the underwater tunnel with the kids and spend the day in themed sections of the sanctuary that houses jelly fish, sharks, rays, otters, penguins, seahorses and over 150 different species of fish.

SEA LIFE sanctuary undertakes conservation of marine life, protecting injured animals and breeding of endangered species. The Seal Hospital cares for a number of rescued seals recovering from their injuries. Many of the animals there have unique rescue stories. The staff is super friendly and are well trained to engage little children with fascinating facts about sea life. The displays are well maintained and animals are clearly looked after well. It makes for a great family day out.

  • At particular times, you will get to be a part of the feeding session for various animals.
  • Dive Adventure quiz trail – pride yourself on your knowledge about marine life? Put it to the test with the quiz trail.
  • Meet Eric and Pumpkin, the much loved otter pair at the sanctuary. Watch them learn and perform new skills in a training show.
  • The jellyfish tanks – Observe their beautifully mesmerizing forms of the jellyfish float around in colourfully lit tube tanks to the sound of music.
  • Pirate Adventure Mini Golf - you have definitely never played golf like this. Groups undertake different challenges at each of the 12 holes (if they manage to reach all 12, that is), proving their navigation skills as they move around cannons, gun powder barrels and treasure chests. Prove your mettle or walk the plank!
  • Rockpool - if you are not afraid to get a little wet, join the sea life experts in exploring creatures that live under rocks around coastlines. At the Rockpool, you get to hold crabs, starfish, shrimp and other shelled creatures and it is completely safe.Just make sure your kids aren’t trying to adopt them and sneaking off with them.

Go home with the satisfaction of having known your watery friends a little better.

Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary, Scarborough Reviews

  • The staff were so helpful and knowledgeable. Pricey because we didn't prebook online. A great way to spend a winter's afternoon. Animals well cared for by passionate staff.

  • Brilliant experience... Such a well run scheme. Having a mobility problem often hinders me from going to all areas but staff here are so helpful that allow you through tunnels to get through where fully mobile customers use stairs. Highly recommended

  • We had a wonderful day out here at Scarborough Sea Life Centre. Andy at reception was excellent and each of the information presentations were very enjoyable. We saw all but the one about Turtles. The Cafe was just what was needed by a couple of small people in tow who both really enjoyed the whole day. Couldn't recommended it highly enough.

  • Visited November 2017..The car park was free because it was out of season..situated in a stunning spot right on sea front on North parade, with excellent views..Best to buy tickets on line as pay at the door is expensive..Very good place for children to learn about what is in our seas, as there are talks and tutorials at different times..Staff are excellent. All in all a very good visit and would go again....

  • We had a really enjoyable few hours here, there is lots to see and it was quiet enough to view everything. Our toddler had the opportunity to walk through the penguin enclosure and stroke a starfish, both of which fascinated her. It's a bonus to have the outside area and the crazy golf. There was a lot more to see and do than we expected and would visit again.
