Scarborough SEA LIFE SanctuaryScarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary

Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary is prominently situated on the North Bay with three iconic triangle buildings. You can walk along the promenade or take a trip directly there by hopping on the North Bay Miniature Railway.

Journey beneath the waves and get up close and personal with some of the most amazing creatures of the sea including sharks, rays and turtles to name a few.

Meet the resident otters, seals and penguins as they go about their daily routines and get to know each character as the day goes on. Visit the hands-on rockpool - dare you hold a crab?

With quiz trails and regular talks and feeding demonstrations throughout the day, there's plenty to keep everybody occupied. You're sure to learn a fantastic 'fishy fact' to wow your friends and family.


Chair lift to restaurant/turtle sanctuary upstairs. Stairs at end of ocean tunnel (6 steps); alternative wheelchair route available.
