What’s your favourite sea creature?

Are you a Common Seal lover, a Humboldt Penguin fancier or a Clownfish groupie? Perhaps it’s the mysterious Sea Dragon or the clever Common Octopus that you love the most. Maybe you simply can’t decide! Here at Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary 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 at Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary. All of them are beautiful.
