Welcome to the Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary

Join us for a great family day out in the stunning surroundings of Loch Creran. Visit the Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary, home to a spectacular aquarium as well as Scotland's leading Seal Hospital.

Journey through over 50 marine displays and get up close to majestic sharks, graceful rays and enchanting seahorses. Meet our adorable seals and hear the touching stories behind their rescues or visit our playful otters, Isla and Lewis. Look out for rare red squirrels and other local wildlife as you explore our Nutkins Nature Trail or have an adventure in our Forest Adventure Play Area. Afterwards, take a well-deserved rest in our Shoreline Coffee Shop and soak up the best views of Loch Creran.

With fun talks and feeding displays as well as so much to see and do, there's plenty for the whole family to enjoy whatever the weather!

Please note we do not admit dogs unless they are guide dogs.

New for 2015- Boat Trips!

Leaving direct from the Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary, our Sea Explorer daily boat trips take in spectacular scenery and stunning wildlife. The thrill of a fast boat trip is the perfect way to experience a wealth of history, wildlife and natural beauty – along the way you will see seals, porpoise, otters, eagles, deer, wild goats and a variety of sea birds. Our fully qualified (and very often amusing) skippers will offer a full interactive tour with information on history, folklore and wildlife
