We have made some changes

You might notice a few things are different at SEA LIFE

We have made some changes to the way we operate for your health and safety so you may notice some changes. 

Our mission is to create truly memorable experiences and we place the utmost importance on the safety and wellbeing of our guests and employees. We have introduced a range of new health and safety measures that seek to reduce the risk associated with the presence of COVID-19 that are in line with government advice and the requirements of local health authorities.


Due to this, some of our experiences are currently unavailable including the Penguin Expedition Boat Ride. See the full list of experiences that are currently unavailable here
