I've always loved marine animals and would love to work with them (especially sea-lions,whales and sharks), so for my 21st birthday my partner bought me a snorkeling with sharks experience! When we arrived there was only me participating so my partner was able to come 'behind the scenes' with me to watch! The gentleman explained all the health and safety... More

We went here in the summer holidays 2016, my son was obsessed with sharks at the time and loved every second. There are great interactive games around the place and staff taking photos with silly backgrounds which you can buy as photos or key rings at the end. It was really good and my son had fun as well as... More

We visited yesterday (23rd April 2017) for the first time since June 2012 and we were very impressed with the improvements that have been made since our last visit. The centre was much more modern and very clean and all of the staff were very happy, friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back again soon.

Loved visiting the sea life centre it was lovely. Only took about an hour walk around and look at everything which is why we had prebooked other tickets for the different attractions.

Good variety of sea life. I would really like to see more tropical fish. There are a few blue tangs but no Angel fish seargant majors etc that add lots of colour.

Visited here as we love the sea life centre in Scarborough however it did not live up to expectations. 3 year old was bored and just wanted to run through and find the stamps for his booklet. Best part was the rock pool where you can touch the starfish etc and the shark tunnel. Got around in about an hour... More

Had a brilliant time here yesterday, my little lad absolutely loved it. The rock pools at the beginning and the little glass pods where you can see under he loved. His favourite bit was the shark tunnel he could of stayed in there for hours

Sea Life is located right on the sea front, a short walk from the Blackpool Tower. There is a decent level of parking nearby both on-street and in multi-story car parks. There wasn't much of a queue when we arrived. Entry is not cheap (£68 for 5 adults and a toddler- there are no OAP concessions). I wouldn't consider it... More
