Got in free with our Merlin pass so we had to take part! Visited with my husband and son. friendly insightful staff throughout however we did get bored and were in an out in 30 minutes. The feeding shows and staff taken events are so spread out that it was hard to imagine planning your trip to include these timings.... More

I certainly don't think that £16.50 per adult is a fair price. It's not a big attraction inside and when we visited as a family, there were renovations being Carried out which we had not been informed of. The centre itself has some impressive Sharks, but on the whole , it's not ' that good .'

We visited in very busy half term. I thought it was expensive, but they have a good large variety of sealife.

The sea life is great for families with young children as there is plenty for them to do to keep them involved so they're not bored like they can touch sea creatures in the rock pools and can find out plenty of facts about the different fish on interactive boards. There is also a ball pool at the end for... More

We took our 6 month old daughter and she adored it! It is one of the few activities like this that she could really enjoy. The staff are so lovely, friendly and chatty. We live in Blackpool and keep coming back, we will definitely take my daughter again it is great for all ages. The only downfall is the price!
