“Great Place to go”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Ignore all the poor reviews, this is a great place to visit. Yes there are only 2 otters and 3 seals at the moment but the aqariums are superb, everyone is friendly and helpful, the signs around the place informative and the outside areas clean tidy and safe. We are going back again today (last there on wednesday) to see the things we missed the first time.
Good, reasonably priced cafe too.
Tip: there are plenty of offers around, from "book on the internet", 40% off vouchers on leaflets and 50% off with a Calmac ticket/receipt.

“Rather small, great for children”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

The Sealife Sanctuary is rather small in comparison with other sea life centers and for that, we found it quite expensive. But it is very nice if you are visiting with children. Don't miss the feeding of the seals! They tell interesting stories there and look out for some vouchers for a cheaper entry-fee

“Otters stole the show...”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We went in as 6 adults and came out like 6 kids - had lots of fun stroking the flat fish, watching the seals and of course watching the ranger feeding the otters. Spent all morning there and time went very quickly. Great fun.

“Good afternoon out with the kids”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

Visited here whilst staying at the caravan site 5 miles south towards Oban. Really enjoyed an afternoon. Good mix of indoor tanks and aquariums, feeding time talks and of course a tea shop. Talks included ... "shoreline" touch pool, conger eels, otters and seals. Nice friendly atmosphere and generally every where nicely presented. Happy to recommend this as a trip out.

“Lovely location”
Reviewed 1 October 2011

Went here on a coach trip and wished we had had longer here. Wonderful views. Don't miss the feeding of the otters. Good tanks inside with lots of flat fish and some sharks.
