Behind the Scenes Tours
It takes a lot of work and effort to keep all of those beautiful marine creatures fed and happy. The Behind the Scenes Tour is a 25-minute insights into some of the programmes members of the public don’t get to see, including breeding, research and conservation. The tours are available for an additional cost on top of entry fees and must be purchased when you book your entry ticket. You can read more here.

For a really unique Sea Life experience, how about sleeping under the sea? If you’ve got a large group or team and need a truly special experience, a sleepover in the marine tunnel is the way to go. Available for groups of 50 people and over, the sleepover package includes a VIP tour and a 4D film. Catering isn’t included, but you can bring snacks or something for tea, such as takeaway pizzas. You can also pre-order a breakfast box for the next morning. If you aren’t keen on the idea of sleeping in the marine tunnel, there is an alternative sleeping area available. See more here.
