Visited as part of resort pass and one of the best visits. Excellent for kids and adults. Blackpool is one of the biggest and best sea life's. Staff also good who were happy to explain things to the kids. With sea life tickets you get adventure crazy golf tickets on the way out for just a pound each. Also did... More

Our son chose this as his birthday outing. I didn't have time to book in advance and make use of vouchers, and was pretty shocked at forking out £70. But it was amazing. We have visited a couple of sea life centres and really enjoyed this one. We got to go behind the scenes (£3 extra per person) and that... More

Really lovely place, on our recent visit the sea stars event had just started which is wonderful and would recommend to everyone, staff are friendly and helpful and they've now added more seats to the shark bit so more people can fit which I think is great.

Spent a lovely couple of hours in here with my 4 and 6 year old. They loved it. Lots of passageways and things to see. They loved the touch pools and sat for ages watching the sharks. Don't bother waiting around for shark feeding, nothing to see from where we were at the big window.They loved stamping their cards. The... More

Went here on Sunday 12th February and had an amazing time. You get to see lots of different sea creatures, all different sizes too. My favourite was seeing the massive stingray in the tunnel. Such an amazing sight to see! Plenty to do here and we'll worth the money. I would recommend this attraction to anyone young or old.

We visited here today. We luckily had a voucher for one of us to get in free or I think we would have walked out of the door. There were stamps for the children to collect on the way round. The lady on the till said our children would get a lovely special gift for completing all the stamps. One... More

We went here as we have the merlin passes so doesn't cost extra to get in. I really did enjoy it, and the kids loved it. Will probably go again once weather gets better

Nice attraction although under going some renovation. was told on entry that feeding the sharks was to take place in 15 mins. having sat through 25 minute talk about sharks we waited expectantly for the spectacle to unfold. it never did. My grandchildren were so disappointed. If nothing had been said there would have been no expectation and the children... More
