Rhyl SeaQuarium has an open seafront location and sits on the beautiful North Wales coastline. We would like to welcome all new explorers to join us on a voyage of discovery as we travel beneath the waves, from tranquil fresh waters to the cold depths of the abyss. Along the way we will encounter the strangely shaped sturgeon, as well as sharks found off our very own coast and rays that glide effortlessly through the water. We will also find solitary lobsters, conger eels and mystical axolotls before entering the Lethal Reef, home to some of the most poisonous animals on our planet. These are just a few of the amazing, strange and beautiful animals that await us on our adventure.

Fantastic little place, great value for money and you can come and go as many times all day by getting your wrist stamped which was fantastic for me as i had my dog in the car in the underground car park a short walk away which was lovely and cool and shady for her on a hot sunny day ...... More

A bit disappointing to be honest. The seal show was good but the aquarium itself seems a bit tired & missing some of the larger creatures you'd expect i.e. Sharks, Sea Turtles & big Rays

Took the kids over Easter we got there and it wasn't busy we went straight in. Lots of fish to gaze at sharks are brilliant We managed to time it where we got to see the sea lion show (2 shows a day I think) and without watching this I'd say it would of been overpriced to be honest (so... More

Nice day out but slightly over priced for what you actually get to see/do. Google states that people typically spend an hour and a half here but within 45 minutes we had walked around the whole aquarium and had seen everything there was to see. We saw the seals being fed which was great fun as they do little tricks... More

We visited the seaquarium with a large group over the Easter weekend. Despite the website saying groups must be booked in advance the staff kindly agreed to accept a group booking on the morning of our trip. This significantly reduced the entrance fee from £9.50 to £4.99 per adult. The aquarium is fairly small and there isn't very much for... More
