British Waters

There is some truly incredible marine life living off and along the coasts of the UK! Huge Humpback Whales breach through the waves, speedy Mako Sharks hunt for iridescent blue Mackerel and hungry Leatherback Sea Turtles stop by each summer to gorge themselves on Jellyfish.

But it's not all about the big stuff. Long and Short-Snouted Seahorses weave through the seagrass, warrior-like Spider Crabs meander along the seabed and shimmering Sand Eels flutter past in shape-shifting shoals.

During your journey through SEA LIFE Brighton you'll encounter all manner of fascinating creatures that make their home in our chilly, British waters!
