  • It was understandably busy on a Saturday during the summer holidays, meaning the tunnel was especially rammed. It's quite a small centre but has really nice displays and a soft play area for my friend's toddler. My only complaint is that there are no signs telling you what the fish in each tank are - just screens that cycle through different fish and facts. I would have liked something permanent so you can see easily and quickly what's in each tank
  • Really enjoyed time here. Play area for under 4's and coffee machine. No real catering for children, would be good to offer somethi g other sweests or crisps! Expect long waiting times for admission during wet/windy weather.
  • Excellent visit, staff member Heidi came up and helped us find an octopus that we couldn't find as she could see us struggling (and she told us he like to hide), then they gave us some really interesting facts about them at the same time which really kept my son interested. It was really interactive and made it much more fun. It would normally have been something we would just walk past and assume the tank was empty so it was great to have the extra info. The stamping booklet for the reward badge at the end was fun too. We also sat through a very interesting talk by Lucy in front of the sharks (shown in the photos) and learnt a lot about the sharks and all the other fish that were swimming by as she was talking. She kept it funny and upbeat at times too which kept us all smiling and wanting to listen to more. Excellent work Lucy! We loved the tunnel and also spent a while sitting watching the stingrays in their massive tank too. At the end of the visit we had a lovely young man serve my son when he bought his souvenir, he asked what my son had enjoyed and seemed genuinely interested which just ended the visit perfectly. Thanks Sealife Blackpool. Hope to see you again sometime.
  • Good place to spend an hour. Wide variety of sea life. Only reason it didn't get a 5 star was because it's very small so not worth the price they charge.
  • Fab! Will return. Fantastic staff, Brill environment and free soft play at gift shop. Reasonable priced gifts too. Thoroughly enjoyed
