Discover our Creatures

What’s your favourite sea creature?

Are you a Shark lover, Seahorse fanatic or a Clownfish groupie? Perhaps it’s the graceful Jellyfish or the clever Octopus that you love the most. Maybe you simply can’t decide! Here at SEA LIFE Blackpool you can make up your mind and see them all - from the curious and the rescued to the rare and the enigmatic we are home to over 2,000 creatures. You’ll be able to get closer to them than ever before.

Many of our creatures are on the endangered list, have been rescued and cannot be released into the wild or have been born and bred as part of our conservation projects here at SEA LIFE Blackpool.
