Details

Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary will take you on a fascinating journey from the coastline to the depths of the ocean through 12 themed zones. Discover a magical underwater world filled with a dazzling array of amazing creatures. Every step will reveal something new, from a face to face encounter with sharks to a hands-on rock-pool experience. Don't miss our outdoor exhibits - penguins, seals and otters!

New arrival for 2017! - Come and meet Barbara, our resident Giant Pacific Octopus, which is one the smartest sea creatures in the animal kingdom. You’ll be amazed at the sheer size and beauty of 'Babs', as she settles in to her new home.

Prepare to be grabbed eight times at once, at our new feature, Octopus Hideout. You’ll be able to get closer than ever before to some of the world’s most intelligent sea creatures, marvel at the incredible colour changing Cuttlefish and meet the Nautilus whose features haven’t changed for over 200 million years!

Come face-to-fin with an incredible array of sharks as they circle above the new abandoned shipwreck. Can you spot our new creatures Bonnethead Sharks and Blacktip Reef Sharks as they settle in to their brand new home?

Visit Yorkshire's only Seal Hospital and see how we care for over 30 rescued seals every year. Watch as we nurse them back to health so they can be safely returned to the wild. Meet Ed our playful seal and watch out for him splashing around. Watch our otters Eric and Pumpkin as they learn new skills through a special training programme. Visit our Turtle Sanctuary and help feed our native sharks and rays!

Discover the truth about the much-misunderstood shark, the plight of the endangered sea turtle, the remarkable life of the seahorse, plus countless surprising facts about these and hundreds of other incredible creatures.

Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary promises a great venue for a family day out as well as an unforgettable entertaining and educational experience. Enjoy regular talks and feeding demonstrations throughout the day and try your hand at our new Dive Adventure Quiz trail.
