The Daddy of All Days Out!

PLEASE NOTE: The offer detailed on this page has now expired

This Father’s Day enjoy the Daddy of all days out at SEA LIFE Blackpool. Join us on Father’s Day and pay a visit to the world’s largest crab: Big Daddy!

And that’s not all - quote ‘Big Daddy’ upon entry on Sunday 15th June 2014 to get Dad in for FREE with one child! See below for full terms and conditions.

Big Daddy, the giant Japanese Spider Crab with a 10 foot claw-span has become a firm favourite amongst visitors since his arrival in April 2013.

Big Daddy - The World's Largest Crab!

The truly giant Spider Crab was destined for a Japanese fish market until a reprieve was negotiated and he was flown to the UK instead. Found in deep waters off the Japanese island of Honshu, the world’s biggest crabs feed mainly on smaller crustaceans and dead fish, and are reputed to live up to 100 years.

Then why not take Dad along to delve deep into the world of sharks in Shark Mission, a brand new feature designed to increase visitor knowledge about sharks and encourage interaction with these amazing creatures in a number of fun ways.

Including a brand new baby shark pool, state-of-the-art interactive screens providing a wealth of shark information and an area featuring shark eggs and foetuses within their egg cases.

Or why not treat Dad to a quirky gift this Father’s Day with one of our brand new once-in-a-lifetime Shark Experiences including Snorkeling in the Ocean Display, Feeding Sharks, becoming a Shark Keeper for the day and spending the night Sleeping with the Sharks! Ask staff or see our website for further details.
Then finish off your exciting day out by stepping into the amazing underwater world of the octopus in the all new Octopus Hideout. This amazing and interactive new feature includes a variety of octopus and their cephalopod cousins.

Jenn Newton, General Manager at SEA LIFE Blackpool said “This Father’s Day we are excited to invite all Dads along to experience the attraction with their family for free.

There really is something for everyone to enjoy from Big Daddy to our new member of the shark family Boris the Bowmouth Guitarshark to half a dozen octopus in our Octopus Hideout feature!”

Get yourself down to SEA LIFE Blackpool this Father’s Day with your Dad and enjoy all that SEA LIFE Blackpool has to offer.
