This was our first visit, we used a groupon voucher which was £12.00. We also had the nursery toy bear for its travel week. Our granddaughter was a little scared at times but this was soon overcome with the penguins and meerkats. The keeper was great and allowed the bear to have their photo taken during the feeding of the... More

Small sealife centre in a great setting. Very expensive if paying full price but worth a visit with Tesco vouchers, otherwise the North Queensferry centre is much better, Groupon or similar. There were a lot of displays missing signs when I visited but I guess they're maybe changing things in low-season. Also thought a few of the tanks were a... More

I visited this attraction with my wife daughter and two grandchildren aged five and two. I found it interesting but the grandchildren found it a bit boring. The youngest grandchild did not have to pay but the five year old had to pay seven pounds. I do believe this would be a good attraction for older children and school parties... More

Reasonable price £29 for family 4. Interesting creatures ranging from seals and penguins to meerkats and fishes. Always visit every time we go to St Andrews and its always different. Nice family trip especially if weather not brilliant.

Not sure if I would have paid full price, but well worth the £12 we paid for a family ticket on Itison. We spent a couple of afternoon hours and saw the seals and meerkats being fed (and just missed the penguins). Otherwise quite a lot of interesting things squeezed into a small space.

We spent about 30 mins here, it was over rather quick to be honest like an in and out aquarium. The dark, underwater atmosphere was awesome and there was an abundance of animals and if you go at the right times you get to see the animals getting fed like meerkats and seals. Very fascinating animals like octopuses, crocodiles, snakes... More

very disappointed. Took my young nephew and neice today. Family ticket £30 certainly over priced for what we saw. It is certainly requires updating very tired. Best way to describe it would be dull. The cafe was no better we were looking for a light lunch paninis was all that was on offer take it or leave it.

Quite a variety here , apart from the Aquariums that house some very attractive fish there are Meerkats, Penguins, and Seals, we went just at the right time to see them all fed. At the Reptile House (for those who dont mind snakes) one of the Keepers allow the public to handle one , this for me was the highlight... More
