SEA LIFE Blackpool
Showcasing over 2,500 spectacular aquatic creatures across 50 dazzling displays, SEA LIFE Blackpool is sure to excite visitors of all ages. Experience the secrets of the deep sea and examine these spectacular species up close.
Four Corners of the World
Four Corners of the World will explore four different sets all created around man made wrecks that have been taken over by marine life. Asia, Africa, Europe and America have been represented with famous underwater landmarks such as the Terracotta Warriors being recreated.
Visitors will also find information on the many local wrecks off the Fylde Coast such as Nelson’s then flagship HMS Foudroyant famously ran aground and was wrecked in a hurricane-force storm in 1897.
Amazing creatures include: Leopard eels, Dwarf fuzzy lionfish, Brittle stars, Spider crabs, Flashlight fish and Mandarin fish who were voted the most beautiful fish in the world, plus many more.
What can you see?
SEA LIFE Blackpool is packed with fascinating creatures. Be sure to visit the huge ocean tank, where a maze of tunnels allows you a unique view of a host of amazing aquatic animals, including tropical sharks, voted the best Ocean Tunnel in Europe.
Look out for Guitar Sharks as they swims above you, as this is the best perspective you can get to see how the shape gives this species its name. You might also spot our Giant Lobster who keepers believe is over 100 years old as well as our Octopus.
Elsewhere, highlights include Clownfish, Our infamous Sea Turtle; Phoenix, Gary the Grouper, many Sting - Rays, Seahorses, Jellyfish and Eels.
For many visitors, the highlight of their visit is seeing these wonderful creatures at feeding time. Watching on as they interact with the keepers is an enthralling sight, so be sure to ask a member of the team for feeding times or more information on any of the 2,500 creatures.
