Things to see:

Journey into the depths of the ocean when you walk through the Ocean Tunnel (in 250,000 litres of water!) and into the magical underwater world. Some of the most dangerous animals are just metres from you - see if you spot the seven different kinds of sharks roaming the dark waters. Tip: there's the Zebra Shark - called Sweetie - the Epaulette shark, Blacktip Reef Shark and Bambu Shark. Don’t miss the live feeding at 3pm daily.

Ray Display

Rays are some of the most majestic sea creatures, gliding through the ocean with such ease and gracefulness. The Ray Display is a great place to learn more about these fascinating animals, a near relative of the shark, having evolved 150 million years ago, and what they feed on and their most effective methods for catching their prey. Hint: it's in the tail.

Discovery Pool

One of the most popular zones in SEA LIFE Helsinki is the Discovery Pool for its stary-legged inhabitants. Learn about the smaller creatures that live in our seas and you might even be able to hold one, too. Fun fact: starfish can grow a new leg in a few week, if they need to lose an old one in self defense.
