“Worth a visit...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Worth a visit if you are interested in marine life. Book the day before the visit because it will be cheaper. It was quite expensive for what it was but enjoyed it all the same...

“Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Been many times, my children loved it and still do as do my grand children, quite costly to get in and restarurant quite dear and food average, always get robbed in gift shop with bairns costs me a fortune, works out quite an expensive visit but thats my fault. Always go at least twice a year with bairns, they love the otters and penguins, very educational experience for them as well as fun.

“Worth a visit.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Lovely for the kids. Its not huge so seems expensive, but considering some of the money goes to helping stranded Seal pups recieve medical help etc I think it's worth it. You can stay as long as you like and there is a cafe selling snacks and drinks etc. The Seals were great at feeding time, and the Otters were amazing.

“Great Day for all the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Allow a full day for your visit. We enjoyed everything but particularly watching the seals and penguins being fed and the handling pool was a great experience. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.
