SEA LIFE Blackpool

Stuck for something to do in between beaches, rollercoasters, and nightclubs? SEA LIFE Blackpool lets you see what’s going on beneath the waves – without having to take a dip. Hint: there’s creatures galore. Explore the four different zones and come face-to-face (or face-to-fin) with shovel nose sharks and giant green sea turtles.

Plan more time if you want to explore

If you're interested in the SEALIFE and are taking your kids, read all the cards explaining to your children what they are. You can do the little things they give you to do on the way round. Watch the feeding and go and handle the crabs it can take a long time if you're interested and your kids are too.

Plenty of stuff to learn

Take your time going around, listen to the talks, read about the fish and the environment they live in.

Worth paying the extra fee for the 4D show

We love the Sea Life Centre; I recommend the 4D experience at the end if it’s open. Small extra charge but we thought it was great!

In our own words...

Take your seaside trip underwater with rays and sharks

There’s loads to see and do at SEA LIFE Blackpool. With over 2,500 creatures to discover (including some shiny Pokémon-style rare species), as well as live talks, feeding sessions, behind the scenes tours and exclusive shark experiences, you’ll need a good few hours for your visit.

The aquarium’s split into different zones so it’s really easy to navigate. There’s Four Corners of the World which has creatures from, you guessed it, all four corners of the world while Rockpools, Shorelines and Tropical Coral Reefs all emulate the different habitats they’re named after.

If you’re here for the sharks, the Ocean View Tunnel and Shark Window are bound to blow your socks off. Then, head to the Baby Shark Nursey to see baby blacktips. Bet you’ve got that song in your head now, don’t you?

At Rainforest Adventure, you swap the sea for the jungle and meet turtles, piranhas and poison dart frogs, to name just a few. And there’s also a Rainforest Ranger Table where you can hold giant grubs, death head cockroaches and African land snails. If you dare, that is.

More about your day out at...

SEA LIFE Blackpool

SEA LIFE Blackpool is usually open daily from 9:30am - 5:30pm. Located right on the Promenade, it’s a cinch to find, but downloading the Blackpool Transport app is a good idea if you want to use public transport to work your way round other attractions.

You’ve got to pre-book online to get in and it’s a cashless attraction, so don’t forget your contactless card. You’ll be glad to know it’s super hygienic (even after official restrictions have ended) and you’re still recommended to wear a face mask unless you’re exempt.

Bring your buggy if you’ve got little ones, there are baby changing facilities and an area at the end of the tour where you can have snacks and drinks. It’s also wheelchair accessible and there’s no need to make special arrangements ahead of time – just pre-book a regular slot and staff will help when you arrive. There are disabled toilets here too, so they do their best to be as accessible and possible.
