Scottish Sealife Sanctuary: In crystal clear waters you can explore over 30 fascinating natural marine habitats containing everything from Octopus to Sharks. Come nose to nose with the graceful rays as they swim to the surface to greet you or stand in the middle of a huge shoal of salmon making you dizzy as they constantly swim around you in our unique shoaling ring. Every day there is a range of talks and feeding demonstrations from our team of marine experts which may allow you to hand feed some of our sharks and rays or perhaps to learn about and hold some starfish and crabs.
