The Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary

The Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary

Nestling in a mature spruce forest on the shores of beautiful Loch Creran the Scottish Sealife Sanctuary enjoys one of the most picturesque settings in Britain, and is home to some of the UK's most enchanting marine creatures

In crystal clear waters you can explore over 30 fascinating natural marine habitats containing everything from Octopus to Sharks.

Come nose to nose with the graceful rays as they swim to the surface to greet you or stand in the middle of a huge shoal of salmon making you dizzy as they constantly swim around you in our unique shoaling ring. 

Every day there is a range of talks and feeding demonstrations from our team of marine experts which may allow you to hand feed some of our sharks and rays or perhaps to learn about and hold some starfish and crabs. 

When you have done that, take a look at our SOS seal rescue facility which includes a busy Seal pup nursery and find out about the work involved in caring for the numerous stray, sickly or injured seal pups which we receive every year

Opening Times

We are open daily from 10am (except Christmas Day)
