SEA LIFE Creatures

Which sea creatures do you love the most? Magnificent Sharks, colourful Clownfish or perhaps inquisitive Sea Turtles? Maybe you simply can’t decide!

Here at SEA LIFE you can make up your mind and see them all - from the curious and the rescued to the rare and the enigmatic. And 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.

Sharks have lived in our oceans for more than 420 million years! That makes them older than trees!
