About the Sanctuary

The SEA LIFE TRUST Beluga Whale Sanctuary is owned and run by the SEA LIFE Trust, a registered charity (no. 1175859) working globally to protect the world’s oceans and the amazing marine life that lives within them. We receive no government funding and rely on public generosity to operate the Sanctuary.

Created in partnership with Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), the SEA LIFE TRUST Beluga Whale Sanctuary is one of the biggest developments in captive whale and dolphin care & protection in decades.

The Sanctuary was built with the support of a donation from Merlin Entertainments and comprises a stunning natural sea inlet in Klettsvik Bay as well as a landside care facility and visitor centre just minutes away.

Our visitor centre is open to the public and all monies raised from ticket sales help us to provide the best possible care for Little White, Little Grey and the other marine animals residing at the Sanctuary.
