Do a fabulous job locally of rescuing, treating and releasing, injured or orphaned sea life from this part of the coast. Very caring staff. Also resident animals to look at and feed. Not the hugest place but worthy of support and an enjoyable way for animal lovers and kids to spend half a day in Skegness.

A lovely little animal sanctuary with a variety of different animals. Good to show kids what happens when wildlife gets hurts. You can tell people who work there generally care for the animals

Had an amazing time here. The seals look so happy and healthy, as do all of the animals and creatures there. The Seal keeper was friendly and enthusiastic and we had a great time chatting with him and learning all about the Sanctuary. I really recommend this place for absolutely everyone and the disabled access around the sanctuary is very... More

Enjoyed the seal & penguin feeding time. Lots to see, seals, penguins, carp, tropical fish, sea fish, butterflies, birds, sheep, goats etc. We... More

We spend about an hour and half there that was including feeding time as we had downloaded vouchers it was good value for money as there is a butterfly enclosure and a small aquarium and the feeding time is great to see.

This was such a nice surprise. We arrived to Skegness early on a Monday morning and decided we would go round the Seal Sanctuary for the price (i think it was £8 per adult) it was amazing value. The animals are very well cared for, all the enclosures and tanks are extremely clean. Great trip out, we will definitely be... More

Too expensive for the money you pay. The feeding ok but the rest of the attraction has very limited appeal.

Sorry you seem disappointed with your visit. Feeding time is always a favourite but I hope you saw everything else we have here as well as the seals. Average visit time is over two hours so we feel the entry price is good value. We are now in our winter price period making your visit even better value - just... More

Not largest of places to visit. But it does have a variety of animals to see. Starting with the reptile house... The odd spider to frighten the kids. A great part to enjoy if it is raining :) Exit the reptile house and check out the carp, they love being fed. If you time it right you can then watch... More
