Bring the classroom to The Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary and let the kids explore the wonderful variety of sea life we have here. Let our Animal Care Team lead the class and teachers, perhaps even learn a little something you didn't already know before!

We make sure your pupils get 'right up-close to the amazing creatures' in our themed displays. After all, the more they see the more they'll learn.

Here are just some of the highlights...

  • 1,500 creatures including seals, otters, sharks, clownfish, rays and more from over 60 amazing displays.
  • A spectacular walk around our Nutkin's Nature Trail.
  • Feeding demonstrations and talks.
  • Marine habitats ranging from rivers and lochs to deep oceans and tropical seas.
  • Will you dare to touch one of our crabs or starfish in our rockpools?
