Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Liked the quiz. Nanna loved all the brightly coloured fish. Liked the jelly fish, the shark tunnel and the sealion display. Jodie liked the panini for lunch. Nanna thought it was a bit expensive but girls enjoyed it. Want to go again. Staff seemed very helpful.

The SeaQuarium is a real jewel in Rhyl and a must-visit for the South African fur seals alone. They have wonderful connections with their keepers. Danielle and Martyn were incredibly helpful. We only had one hour before closing upon arrival, but managed to see everything, apart from the harbour seals who were asleep after their show. The fur seals: Solo, Sefer and their other friend were happily swimming along to disney tunes, as the sun shone brightly down on them. Solo even came out of the water, smiled, posed and danced when mammal keeper Martyn called her name. They were all wonderfully playful, even after a long sunny day. We will definitely return.

We've been to a few similar Sea life centre type places in the UK and this one was comparable. From the outside it looks small but there is actually a bit more to it inside. The facility was clean and well maintained which is rare for Rhyl, however I would agree that it was expensive for what it was. Other than that it killed an afternoon and we enjoyed our time.

the kids had a great time here only 20 mins from Haven , sealion show was brilliant really entertained the kids not too expensive for pictures with the sealions ,was £32 for a family ticket which was pretty good , took us about 2 hours to get around it but your hand is stamped so you can go back in anytime during the day

Me and my girl friend paid £14 (well i paid because im nice) to get in and we was told the sea lion (seal) attraction was going to start, we got round the place in no time, less than a minute to be honest. Got outdoors, the tanks seem dirty and the water isnt very nice but the other tank is rather clean. The show lasted 15 minutes, the seals have been well trained, very good performance, but the time that we got to watch wasnt very long (unless thats me getting older and being miserable) We was given the option to have our photos taken with the seal`s but as a photographer myself I was very disappointed in the results of other family's got.

All in all, its a bit morbid, some tanks were closed, the interaction bit was dead, no staff to be seen, the shop was dusty and outdated, staff didnt seem to give a crap, a few were nice but thats about it. Food was average in the cafe.

All in all, I think because of Rhyl being a bit outdated itself, its kinda following that, but I`m sure in a short time it`ll be all done up like Blackpool.

So in all of that said

Worth a visit, but not worth the money. Kids should enjoy it but parents I dont think will so much.
