SCHOOL TRIPS

We make sure your pupils get right up close to the amazing creatures in our themed displays. After all, the more they see the more they'll learn.

Schools love SEA LIFE!

Here at The Scottish SEA LIFE Oban we offer a truly unique alternative for your school trip.

 

We have hundreds of amazing creatures for your class to learn about including native sharks, seals, clownfish, rays and many more.

Your class will come face-to-fin with native sharks, meet our playful Otter and they'll be able to follow the journey of rehabilitating Seals in Scotland's leading Seal Hospital.

You are free to attend our regular talk and feeding demonstrations and get hands-on in our interactive rock pool experience where you can touch a starfish and hold a crab!
