Welcome to Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary

Brand New for Easter 2015: Penguin Island!

Join us this Easter as we welcome back our colony of adorable Humboldt Penguins and introduce them to their brand new walkthrough home - a first for SEA LIFE Europe! You'll be able to waddle side by side with our amazing feathered friends and meet the 8 additional penguins we have introduced to our colony, including 2 baby penguins that have been lovingly hand reared by our dedicated animal care team.

Thinking of coming before Easter? Don't worry - there will still be plenty for you to see and enjoy from Yorkshire’s only Seal hospital to Black Tipped Reef Sharks!
