Last week we visited Sea Life Manchester – where the girls had loads of fun meeting the Octonauts, stroking snakes and starfish, and (kind of) high-fiving a turtle. We were kindly given entry to Sea Life to review the attraction, and it was a lovely way to spend a few hours as a family.

Exploring the aquarium 

There are lots of different zones within the aquarium, starting with Turtle beach. Here you find out about the life of a sea turtle through an interactive presentation, and it’s cute seeing the baby turtles projected onto the sand. Next you get to see some of the most unusual looking fish and sea creatures in the rocky hideout, find out more about sharks and seahorses and explore the coral reefs. Of course the “Nemos” were Clara’s favourites, and she enjoyed ducking through the tunnel to watch them. There are a few tunnels dotted around the aquarium so children can really get up close to the fish.
