BLOGMAS DAY 8: Sea Life Blackpool!

Hello! Welcome to my blog if you're new and welcome back if you're returning! I have decided that I am going to do 'Blogmas' this year where I will be posting every day from the 1st of December until the 24th of December, so come back every day for a new post!

At the start of December I visited Sea Life, Blackpool, located on the promenade opposite Central Pier. At less than £20 each, you and your family, friends or kids (under 3s are free!) can have an experience you wont forget. If you are a shark lover, you can visit these majestic creatures. If you are not sure what your favourite is, you can make up your mind after the visit, once you have seen them all.

Sea Life Blackpool are home to over 2,000 spectacular aquatic creatures including tropical sharks, colourful reef fish, octopus, rays and sea horses; it is the perfect way to experience the wonders of underwater life without getting wet! If you want to, you will most definitely be able to get closer to them than ever before, with a rock pool at the start of your adventure where you can dip your hand in (shown in the first photo) and get up close and personal with the sea life- including crabs, starfish anemones and cleaner shrimp.

Many of the creatures at Sea Life Blackpool are on the endangered list, have been rescued and cannot be released into the wild, or have been born and bred as part of the conservation projects that they run at Sea Life Blackpool. With their partner charity, The Sea LifeTrust, they are very proud to develop and support projects that protect marine wildlife and habitats across the world. They are dedicated to the conservation of marine wildlife and the environment. Last year they raised a staggering £300,000+ globally to support the Trust's projects and partner organisations, protecting sharks, rays, turtles, whales, dolphins, seahorses, otters, penguins and many other creatures.

Sea Life Blackpool is fun for all ages and it is fully accessable for everyone, it is fully wheelchair accessible,  meaning everyone can experience the incredible underwater life.

Animal feeds take place throughout the day in different areas of the attraction so you can see for yourself just what and how they all eat. Every feed is accompanied by a fact-filled talk by a member of their team.

Sea Life Blackpool is one of the best Sea Life Centres I have ever been to with the biggest variety of creatures and if I was in Blackpool, I would for sure go again without a doubt. The staff were all lovely, very helpful and voluntarily gave facts about all the creatures on show.

My favourite thing at Sea Life Blackpool was definitely the clown fish- who doesnt love them when Nemo exists? You cant look at a clown fish without associating it with Nemo likewise with Dory. You cant deny the absolute beauty of the sharks of the ocean and the cuteness of the sea horses.

All in all, the trip was SO worth it and I'd really love to do it again. Sea Life Blackpool is definitely the place to go if you love sea life or you just would like a fun few hours out.

One thing I discovered at Sea Life Blackpool is how incredibly difficult it is to take photographs of creatures under the water, but here are some I took from my trip- there isnt photographs of every creature in the centre, only a small selection, but these are most of my favourites.
