Scottish Sealife Sanctuary

Venture into the depths of the ocean and be amazed by two bizarre ratfish, set to make their first ever appearance in a British aquarium, 175 years after their discovery. The Sanctuary is Scotland’s largest marine mammal rescue centre operating a highly successful ‘rear and release’ programme for rescued common seal pups. Plus - thousands more sea creatures in natural marine habitats. A host more displays provides a fascinating insight into the myriad marine marvels to be discovered beneath the seas around our own shores, providing close encounters with everything from humble shrimps and starfish to sharks and stingrays. SOS Seal Rescue Experience what a seal pup rescue is like through the eyes of an abandoned pup. Otter Creek A purpose built facility in the most stunning of settings provides a perfect home for a pair of Canadian otters…perfect ambassadors for the conservation cause of otters in the wild. Claws Don’t miss this special exhibition dedicated to those ‘hardcases’ of the oceans…the crabs and their cousins! Stars of the show are the Giant Japanese Spider Crabs…whose claw-span can reach an astonishing three metres. Seahorse Breeding and Conservation Centre The Centre opens up to sanctuary visitors the pioneering breeding and research work that marine experts have been conducting behind the scenes at Sea Life centres since 1995.
