Description: THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO A WILDLIFE PARK LESS ORDINARY! Seaview...
THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO A WILDLIFE PARK LESS ORDINARY! Seaview Wildlife really stands out from the crowd! Tucked away on the N.E. Coast of the Island, situated on the outskirts of the pretty yachting village of Seaview, you will discover this hidden gem, the Isle of Wight's leader in hands-on wildlife experiences and ranked Number 1 out of 98 Isle of Wight Attractions on Trip Advisor! Getting mobbed by Wallabies and Meerkats might send some people running but animal enthusiasts will be in seventh heaven - in absolute style - at this multi-award winning attraction that is set in stunning open parklands with a backdrop of fabulous sea views. The main focus is on involvement where guests are encouraged to join in with the nine daily wildlife events that are led by a dynamic animal care team who deliver fun hands-on presentations and will introduce you to the most amazing characters and a vast array of unbelievably tame feathered and furry friends! Our licensed ' Seaview Bay ' cafe serves locally sourced ingredients such as fresh Bembridge crab sandwiches accompanied with a chilled glass of wine or relax on our outdoor patio areas with stunning views. Home made light lunches and delicious strawberry cream teas feature on the menu together with an extensively stocked gift shop with a ' new refurbished look ' for 2014! Personal, bespoke V.I.P. Packages include one-on-one encounters with penguins where meeting ' Dippy' the famous Isle of Wight penguin has to be top of your bucket list! Have a private meeting with the 'maddest mischievous meerkat mob' or book a behind the scenes Keeper For A Day or Junior Wildlife Experience - the ultimate wildlife treat! You can never be too spoilt! Offering excellent value for money this is a magical day out for all the family and a wildlife extravaganza not to be missed so, don't leave the best until last and definitely don't leave the Island without visiting this exclusive Wildlife Getaway!

Really good memories from this place, not a zoo! At your arrival hundreds of ducks welcome you and follow you during your visit. Penguin's and other animals are the most attraction. Recommended 100%

Organised our trip as part of our holiday to take my niece to feed the penguins as part of her birthday present. We were able to use our Tesco club card vouchers and had money left over to buy food for the animals. We were given a map to help guide us around the grounds. Wifi available in the cafe,... More

Whether it is feeding the wildfowl, penguins or wandering around the tropical gardens this place is well worth a few hours of your life and is a safe place for children to have fun and explore.

Of all the wildlife parks, that is. Well kept grounds, above all well looked after animals & birds. We've visited several times now, every one has been enjoyable. Even the refreshments are reasonably priced and of good quality - the tea is really good! Children will love it.

What a great place to take small children, on entering you are mobbed by an array of different water birds all keen for you to feed them. Buy plenty of feed at the shop as you will need it. Visit Dippy the penguin, great fun trying to spot him amongst his friends. Tropical house is great but watch out for... More

We visited twice - once on the Friday of October half term, very busy but lots of opportunities to interact with the animals at feeding time, and once on the Saturday morning - think we were first through the gates and had a great time feeding the very hungry ducks and enjoying a more quiet, leisurely experience. We went as... More

This was a great day out. The ducks and geese flapped and quacked enthusiastically when we arrived, clamouring for food from our hands. The paths were well laid-out and my young son loved running along them, then over the little bridge and past the bushes. Feeding the penguins was a treat and everyone had the opportunity to feed a fish... More

We had a lovely few hours at Seaview, the venue is exceptionally clean throughout, all the enclosures are well maintained and there is a genuine feeling of care and love for the occupants of Seaview Wildlife. We arrived just after opening time and the ducks were very happy to eat the food we'd bought for them, which was the highlight... More

We went to Seaview Wildlife Encounter during the October half-term and had a wonderful day. We were one of the first through the gates and were welcomed by an army of fowl ready to liberate us of our duck food (I'd recommend buying multiple bag and saving it for later in the day as well). The whole experience was excellent,... More

We visited on a really wet Wednesday during half term and park was not at all busy we had a family ticket which was £32 and we had 2 bags of seed to feed the ducks which were 75p each. They have a good selection of animals here for a relatively small park but the highlight for my partner and... More
