Rhyl SeaQuarium has an open seafront location and sits on the beautiful North Wales coastline. We would like to welcome all new explorers to join us on a voyage of discovery as we travel beneath the waves, from tranquil fresh waters to the cold depths of the abyss. Along the way we will encounter the strangely shaped sturgeon, as well as sharks found off our very own coast and rays that glide effortlessly through the water. We will also find solitary lobsters, conger eels and mystical axolotls before entering the Lethal Reef, home to some of the most poisonous animals on our planet. These are just a few of the amazing, strange and beautiful animals that await us on our adventure.

My hubby came to Rhyl as we were in Llandudno on holiday and decided to get a day ticket so we could get around North Wales. Bit pricy but we enjoyed our hour here. The ticket allowed you to come back during the day which was fine with us. Is ideal for families.

Love bringing the family here. They have plenty for the family to see and the seal demonstrations are just superb! The kids were amazed by the demonstrations and its clear they are loved by the trainers there. It's a great day out and having been to two sealife centres and this the kids and the wife all agree this is... More

Overall not a bad place to visit with family. I would say it's slightly overpriced, could do with having a family saver ticket or something like that but I should imagine these places are not cheap to run. The venue isn't run down but certainly isn't new by any means. Also the interactive screens wasn't working and don't think they... More

My wife and I brought our two year old daughter for a day out. It took us fifteen minutes to go round the entire complex and we left feeling underwhelmed and ripped off. Furthermore, the staff were not very engaging as we went round. Overall, very disappointed with the experience.

Smaller than expected but great for a cold wet day. Suitable for all ages (we had a 7 yr old and a 16 yr old) Good variety of sea life to see and if you go at the right time you can feed the seals and sea lions. Lovely little gift shop and even though we didn't eat here the... More

If you like to see fish and seals,and you are close to Rhyl on a rainy day this is worth a visit. It has a sunvener shop and an ok cafe, in side so you can get a drink and food,if you are going to wate for the show/feeding time

Entrance prices clearly aimed at fleecing the holiday makers. Far too dear for what it is. Only takes 20-30 minutes and that's including the gift shop. I don't like the idea of wanting to put a stamp on my hand so I may return.

Although slightly overpriced, we enjoyed our visit. It was great to have a seal show especially when other sea life centres we have been to don't have this facility. You can have a photo with the seal. The sea horse tank was the best I've seen. Great for buggies, contains a cafe and shop but we didn't buy any food... More
