Sealife is the same as you'd expect any sealife to be. It's educating and interesting if you are interested in this kind of thing. You take the bus from the centre. It takes around 20 minutes but it's a nice journey and you get to see some nice views of the sea. You could walk from the Castle but that would take around 15-20 minutes.
Inside there are plenty species on display. Their 'hit' seems to be the giant turtle, which is very big indeed! They have penguins which are always fun to see, otters and a seal rescue centre. There were two seals that had just been rescued. It was pretty sad to see because they were ill, but obviously being looked after. It makes you feel better that you know your entrance fee is being put to good use.
Entrance fee - a few reviews are complaining it's expensive. Well it's not cheap to run a place like this, and if you are aware of what they do (as with the seal rescue) and conservation you'll understand why it might cost. Obviously if you are coming here just for something to do it might seem abit much but as stated on other reviews if you book online previous to turning up you can get a discount.
The centre isn't the biggest albeit. After you have finished there isn't anything but a pub/restaurant across the car park and if using the bus, it's every hour. So plan wisely and leave when the bus is due.
