At SEA LIFE Blankenberge you embark on a thrilling journey of discovery through the mysterious underwater world. More than 50 aquariums reveal the amazing underwater life from the Amazon River to the North Sea and many more rivers, seas and oceans. From spectacular sharks in the shark tunnel, notorious piranhas, the national breeding programme for seahorses to a beautiful disabled sea turtle - you'll find it all at SEA LIFE!
Perhaps the most famous part of SEA LIFE Blankenberge is the seal sanctuary where stranded seal pups are brought and cared for. Over the past fifteen years the Rescue Team has collected over 375 seal pups and cared for them before releasing them back into the sea, thanks to the support of SEA LIFE's sympathisers and visitors.
In the large 2,750 m2 outdoor area you can also observe the crazy Humboldt penguins, playful otters and impressive sea lions.
