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!

He did not want to go in, but a member of staff clapped his hands and they hurried away, so we were able to make a quick entrance. When in... More

My whole family loved it. My nan, mum, stepdad, brother, my five year old sister and even my boyfriend. My boyfriend hates going to the zoo he finds it mind numbing because I go to every zoo I come across but even he agreed it was a great day out. Feeding the penguins was my nans favourite part. My sister... More

Went here with my husband. It's a really great place for both families, or like us, for adults. It's a more personal experience than a zoo, with Ducks and geese wandering everywhere, and you being able to feed or pet most of the animals for no extra charge. They have an activity to do almost every half hour so we... More

Delightful day out with two young grandson, highlight being able to feed the Penquins, with out being charged extra. Although the weather was foul it didn't stop us all having a great day out and getting up close to the animals. The indoor play area was excellent. Will most certainly return again. Loved it.

My partner and I both visited Seaview Wildlife Encounter back in August; we have been here on numerous occasions and is somewhere we thoroughly enjoy visiting every time we come to the IOW, we both agree that this is definitely in the top 3 attractions to visit whilst on the Island.. The entrance fee is a reasonable £9.95pp, which is... More

I have visited Seaview on three occasions and it never gets old, you get to interacted with many of the animals and get to spend some time feeding certain ones, my favourite has to be the wallabys they are friendly and enjoy the human contact. All of the animals are well looked after. The staff are knowledgeable and are keen... More

This is an absolutely wonderful venue with a wide range of animals to see and interact with. The staff are fantastic, knowledgeable and caring of both the animals and their visitors. There is so much to see and do and you can easily spend four or more hours here. There are specific times where you can see/feed/interact with some of... More

You could tell that the keepers really cared about the animals and enjoyed interacting with them. Great day. The kids were allowed to throw fish for the penguins during the feeding talk.
