great for kids

Nice place but over proceed for around 2 hours in there. The penguins and sealions are worth going to see especially at feeding time.

Nice place

Went here today. When we first arrived wasn’t sure what to expect but when we got inside we were pleasantly surprised. Lots to look at and all the fish and animals looked well looked after which is so important.

Awe & Wonder
Oct 2021 • Family
This was such a great trip! Our children loved it, lots of ‘Awe & Wonder’ moments! So many species to look at! The rain was smashing down outside but inside was quiet, tranquil and awe inspiring!

The sharks, penguins, jellyfish & stingrays were a particular highlight! The Aqua tunnel was decent too.

It wasn’t busy (as Scarborough chn were at school). This made it much quieter and more pleasant! Would return! 🌟🐠🦈🦭

BEST EXPERIENCE - VIP SEAL
Oct 2021 • Couples
This was an absolutely amazing experience! Myself and my boyfriend went for the vip experience which Tiegen led- she was so lovely and had answers to all our questions- very patient when me and my partner were taking photos and looking at the tanks. The experience itself is once in a lifetime- the seals there are so well looked after, we both have a particular soft spot for Mando- very cute! The experience is well worth the money with a whole bucket of fish to feed the boys! Next Tiegan took us on a guided tour- it was great with the centre still being quiet and very one to one! She was very enthusiastic and a fantastic guide! On the tour we met Leo- Leo had a great knowledge of the rainforest area and told us facts and explained some of the rainforest creatures to us- he was very kind and also offered great and informative information- very easy to talk to and answered all our questions. Finally we had breakfast in the caffe- Jane in the caf was very generous and lovely- making us breakfast and offering us drinks to takeaway! Overall the experience was absolutely amazing! We will definitely come again- the place is ver well looked after with amazing, caring staff- would rate more stars if I could! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Our third time
Oct 2021
Well, this is our third year running to the Sea life Centre and we still enjoy visit and day out. My wife enjoys the whole day out from the start to finish. The staff are really friendly and very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, the Sea Life Centre lost Eric the Otter at 21 years old (a good life) and then his partner Pumpkin, recently, so at the moment Harris, the replacement for Eric is on his own, but hopefully not for long. The Penguins, as usual were noisy entertainers waiting to be fed. The big surprise of the day was the Leaf Cutting ants which we found very entertaining, and new since we last visited. Although you can ask staff questions at any time, it would be nice probably, for a talk to be given on the ant's background, and how the temperature has to be kept at 25 degrees and humidity etc. The Sea Life Centre do a marvellous job, and a special thanks goes to the lad with the beard who is always helpful explaining things.

Hi Paul C, Thank you very much for the ‘otterley’ amazing review! It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family to the centre. We're over the moon that you all had a brilliant experience! Thanks for the lovely words about our otters, penguins and leaf cutter ants; you've certainly summed them all up perfectly! That's a great suggestion, although our staff are always on hand to give 'adhoc' talks about the ants, it's certainly something that we can look into to. I will pass on your lovely feedback to the staff; it certainly makes our job so much more rewarding when we receive the recognition. Thanks again, and we hope to' sea' you sometime soon! Kind regards, Graeme SEA LIFE Scarborough

good for kids but better options available
Jul 2021
Wasn't as good as expected but would have been good for children. seemed very understaffed and the mini golf was an utter waste of money. highlight though was the massive turtle. clean inside but wouldn't return.

Hello Jamestc123, Thank you for taking the time out to leave us a review! I'm sorry to hear that you were didn’t think we were as good as you expected. When did you visit? Our loggerhead turtle Antiopi has actually gone on holiday to Brighton, so she's currently not onsite at the moment, she's certainly missed! I believe most hospitality and tourism venues have struggled for staffing levels this year, and it's certainly impacted us too. As you can imagine, it's been very difficult for us to have the correct staffing levels at all times, but we've most certainly tried our best. Can I please ask what was wrong with our Pirate Adventure Mini Golf? Thanks for the positive feedback in regards to the cleanliness of the attraction, it’s appreciated. If you'd like to elaborate further about your visit, please email us directly via slcscarborough2@merlinentertainments.biz. Kind regards, Graeme SEA LIFE Scarborough
