There’s so much more under the sea than The Little Mermaid at Sea Life Manchester.

This aquarium experience is an aquatic adventure, so strap on your sea legs and discover the shark shipwreck, home to blacktip reef sharks and octopus, before swimming on over to the coral reef to explore the kaleidoscope of colour. Back on land walk through the ocean tunnel, visit the Seahorse Nursery, Sting Ray Bay and rock pool.

The Rocky Hideout Zone is an immersive environment where you can explore caves and get up close to more amazing sea creatures, before enjoying the interactive turtle beach experience – a unique 3-D projection that guides you through the perilous life of a turtle from the egg to the sea!

Life is better down where it’s wetter!
