Pirates and Mermaids at SEA LIFE Scarborough Saturday 25th May - Sunday 8th September

Ahoy! The Jolly Roger has docked at SEA LIFE Scarborough this summer and the crew are on a mission to find the missing treasure. But wait - an enchanting cohort of mysterious mermaids have also appeared and are on the hunt for the lost bounty too. All guests need to do is decide if they want to be part of Team Pirates or Team Mermaids.

    Each team is then in a race to locate the six missing pieces of treasure in SEA LIFE’s immersive in-tank trail. Legend has it that there is a long-lost pirate compass that needs to be found, alongside an ancient mermaid crown which has been adrift at sea for centuries… until now, when guests are invited to recover it.


    Along the way, guests will have the chance to learn more about SEA LIFE Scarborough's amazing aquatic creatures.


    Once the treasure has been found and the quest is complete, guests will get to meet the legendary pirates and mermaids themselves. Little Landlubbers can learn secret underwater language with one of the enchanting mer-creatures or practice their meanest ‘ARRRRRR’ with a pirate captain. But be warned – the scurvy sailor might make them walk the plank!


    At the end of the trail it’s all hands-on deck as guests will visit the activity zone featuring a swashbuckling array of activities to keep even the saltiest Seadogs occupied! Adventurers will even receive a gift to take away, keeping them as happy as a clam for the car journey home!


    Lucky explorers may even get the chance to witness the spellbinding in-tank mermaid show which will showcase the enchanting magic of these fascinating creatures. Watch as their long hair billows in the waves and the shiny scales shimmer and twinkle in the sunlight.
