The Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary, Argyll

The sanctuary has over 30 marine habitats on display allowing you to see octopus, sharks, rays and lots of fish. Highlights include a shoaling ring where salmon swim around you, an inside view of the seal pup nursery and the opportunity to hold a starfish or crab.
Experts are on hand to give talks and demonstrations including an opportunity to hand feed the sharks.
