My family and I visited Sealife in October 2016. It certainly is quite big and there are some excellent areas where one can spend long hours with pleasure. The gift shop and the photo shop are very expensive.

Had a really good time our 5 year old granddaughter was amazed. Staff very friendly. Of course the business does try to squeeze every last penny out of you. But as a treat definately worth it.
