What you can expect

Connect with the underwater world at SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's Aquarium featuring 13-themed zones, 30 live animal displays, and more than 80 marine species. Designed by renowned diver and all-around adventurer, Kelly Tarlton. This experience brings out the aquatic explorer in you.

Start your day of discovery at Scott’s Hut – a replica of the hut erected in 1911 by British Antarctic Expedition in 1910-1913, led by Robert Falcon Scott.

Walk through our Antarctic Ice Adventure - home to the world's largest colony of Sub-Antarctic penguins on display. Watch the yellow-collared King and playful Gentoo penguins waddle within an icy and snowy habitat that closely mimics their natural one.

See your creations come to life in an interactive projection tank alongside bright and colourful fishes at Amazing Creations.

Learn about how we work with rescued turtles at Turtle Bay and Turtle Rescue interactive Zone.

Then head to the hands-on Rockpool Experience, where starfish, hermit crabs, and sea cucumbers inhabit touch pools.

Stroll through the world’s first curved underwater tunnel. Look up the Shark Tunnel to see our collection of sharks and stingrays swimming above you and learn about their majestic ways. At Shipwreck Discovery, you can check out treasures and artefacts from shipwrecks uncovered by Kelly Tarlton himself.

Be on the lookout for the elusive Spiny Sea Dragon at the Seahorse Kingdom, they are typically seen only by deep-sea divers.
