This summer you don’t need to get wet to get closer to marine life. You and your family can explore an incredible array of creatures right here in Central London. Watch your little ones’ faces light up as they are mesmerised by the sharks and turtles swimming all around them.
So whether you’re looking for a family day out or a date night with your new love, here are six fin-tastic reasons why SEA LIFE London should be on your ‘must-do list’ this season:
NEW! Meet our new stingrays
Joining the Pacu fish this summer will be Motoro Stingrays – also known as peacock-eye stingrays due to their spotted appearance. Visit our new Rainforest experience to catch sight of these beautiful creatures.
Did you know? These freshwater creatures appreciate their space, so you will often find them hiding in the sand at the bottom. Keep your eyes peeled to spot them with our Pacu fish.
Face the sharks
SEA LIFE London is the only place in London where you can snorkel with sharks! You will come face to fin with several species including Sand Tiger, Black Tips and Nurse Sharks.
Did you know? These highly intelligent creatures have to learn fast, once they are born the sharks have to look after themselves!
This summer come and meet the Gentoo penguins, these social creatures enjoy living in colonies and they mate for life!
Did you know? They are incredibly caring creatures and form strong partnerships. They build nests with pebbles while they’re mating and then share the responsibility of looking after the eggs together. That’s definitely what you call a bond for life!
Walk under our turtles
The Green Sea Turtles Boris and Phoenix have been with us for several years but are still just young teenagers. At SEA LIFE London you can walk through our ocean tunnel where you can watch them glide through the water alongside an array of fish including unicorn tangs and puffer fish.
Did you know? Green Sea Turtles are actually loners, they only bump into their friends once a year when they beach up to lay eggs. The rest of the time they prefer to glide around the ocean, usually eating almost anything!
Watch clownfish at work
These colourful fish may be small but watch them travel in schools at SEA LIFE London and see how they work hard to keep their habitual anemones clean and healthy.
Did you know? While the females lay the eggs, the males play an important role in helping to keep them clean and safe. Now that’s what we call teamwork!
Take a look at our range of seahorses
There are four different types of seahorses at SEA LIFE London from Hippocampus to Big Bellied Seahorses.
Did you know? Seahorses have excellent eyesight and their eyes are able to work independently on either side of their head – handy when they are hunting for food!
These and many more mesmerising experiences, including Ocean Invaders: Enter the world of Jellyfish, the Ocean Tunnel and Shark Walk are just some of the incredible experiences awaiting guests, who want to step into the underwater world this summer.
