Visited here with my 9 year old son and had good fun. Especially enjoyed feeding the ducks as you walk in! Pretty much did the whole park within a couple of hours, so just about worth the money. Very well laid out park, with some interesting exhibits. Most definitely ideal for younger children, not so good for teenagers.

The Seaview Wildlife Encounter was well worth a visit - particularly if you like ducks! I felt like the Pied Piper of Seaview with about 100 ducks following me for some food. They are very tame and will eat out of your hand. The willow tree walk around a large pond was extremely pleasant and relaxing. There is plenty of... More

We had a cracking day at the Seaview Wildlife Encounter, there was a mix of us from aged 7 to 67 and everybody really enjoyed it. The interaction with the animals was excellent. The layout and setting is stunning, so well constructed. We came over from Portsmouth on the Hovercraft so also got a discount on entrance to the park.

This is our second time of visiting here, and has changed quite a bit in 2 years, the ducks and geese were waiting for you as soon as you entered the gate and never left you alone all the way around it was quite funny they constantly followed you around the park for food and was great that they were...

Great place to visit, the birds and animals all look well cared for, the whole park is clean and tidy with well kept gardens too. Staff are happy to chat with you about the wildlife. Its easy to spend the whole day here, so why not take a picnic and make a day of it. There is a restaurant though... More

Having previously visiting this park around 5 years ago we decided to visit again. It was so refreshing to see animals happy and so looked after by the keepers. I enjoyed all the interaction with the animals. It turned me into an animal lover. The animals were so friendly and I loved the shows that the keepers put on explaining... More

Seaview is a fantastic animal encounter park on the IOW. You get to interact with the animals, not just view them from behind a fence. Ducks, geese, penguins, meerkats, and parrots are just some of the animals here and the park has made a great effort in getting guests involved with them. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is... More

Aww this place is great but beware of the ducks who try to fleece you of food at every opportunity.. Funny little things! Animals are really well cared for, be sure to listen to the talks and get involved in the feeding times. Don't miss the wallabies you can walk through them and give them a stroke or a brush.... More
