Been here with my family. Little one throughly enjoyed it. Especially the part where he touched a star fish. We haven't heard the end of it. All staff were really friendly :)

Really enjoyed walking around here, lots of good displays of the fish etc. My only problem is that it didn't take very long to get round so not sure if it was worth the £46 for three of us to get in.

An ideal place for kids and adults to see nature up close. There are areas where you can touch starfish and other sea creatures. You can see fish that the kids will recognise from the films Finding Nimo and Saving Dory. It was amazing going through the glass tunnel seing sharks and wray fish inches away. The only slight negative... More

I booked this activity for myself and my boyfriend as we were visiting Blackpool for the weekend as a birthday treat...what an experience it was! Snorkelling with the sharks was one of the best things I have ever done, with our guide being very helpful and ensuring we were safe throughout our time. He was very supportive of apprehensive participants,... More

Took relatives of all ages and although the young ones were often glued to their phones there was plenty to see and educational materials available.

This Sealife centre is smaller than others we have been to, but it seemed much cleaner. All the tanks were immaculate. The staff were wonderful and always had time for any questions. Sam gave great talks. On this occasion my son and husband took part in the snorkel with sharks experience. Mike was very patient with my Shark nerd son.... More

My son absolutely loves sharks and had a great time seeing the different sharks as well as other varieties of sea life. This is the best sea life centre we have been too, I especially loved the large viewing window before entering the tunnel to see the sharks. Also the toys in gift shop were reasonably priced which is refreshing!
