Scarborough SEA LIFE Sanctuary

Animal-Centred Attraction


Yikes! Dare you brave the brand new Rainforest Adventure at Sea Life Scarborough?

Immerse yourself in a world of creepy crawlies, lurking lizards and curious critters. Come just centimetres away from Green Tree Pythons and be mesmerised at the incredible colours of Poison Arrow Dart Frogs. With new creatures, sights and smells around every corner your journey into the rainforest will be one you won’t forget.

The adventure doesn’t stop there, dive into an amazing underwater world and take a fascinating journey to the ocean depths as you discover over 2500 amazing creatures at this unique indoor and outdoor attraction.

Discover the incredible creatures of the Great Barrier Reef including a beautiful blue spotted stingray and marvel at the colourful array of stunning fish.

Don’t forget to head outside and meet the cheeky colony of Humboldt penguins that reside on Penguin Island and get closer than ever before as you make your way through their walk-through home.

Just around the corner you’ll find Yorkshire’s only Seal Hospital, responsible for the rescue, rehabilitation and release of over 50 seals every year. Visit the patients undergoing treatment in the hospital and find out all about their plights in the wild.

Make sure you don’t miss a visit to the Otter River, where you’ll find our pair of playful Asian short clawed otters splashing around!

Finally take a stroll through the incredible 200,000l Ocean Tunnel and be mesmerised by the incredible beauty that lives within. See our rescued Loggerhead Sea Turtle, Antiopi, glide effortlessly around and come face-to-fin with Blacktip Reef Sharks.
