About
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!

This was I very lovely attraction with and old school vibe, it's a great shame that we will not see the like again. As I keep saying use it or loose it. We have been lucky enough to visit other attractions to where some of the animals have been re homed.

Sep 2015 • Family
so so gutted its now closed.
the best attraction on the island. beautifully set out, the cafe food was lovely, gorgeous home made cheese cakes, large variety of gifts in the gift shop.
loved the hundreds of ducks wandering around, we all used to love feeding them.
best part was feeding the penguins at the end of the 3.30 pm talk.
the harbor was lovely, nice place to sit and relax, lovely getting a picture sitting the the giant deckchair.
we all loved stroking the wallabies.
was a great place to go.

Loved!
Oct 2015 • Family
We loved it here, views fantastic! Our 2 year old loved feeding the ducks. Wasn't too expensive for a day out. Food in cafe was reasonable & good selection. Good animal interaction & staff seemed to really enjoy looking after the animals. Was fairly quiet during our visit which was good

Very sad its closed after so many years
BUT cheer up if you respect nature and you like your birds wild, there is natural wet land & bird sanctuary very close,just behind it off the duver(sea rd to seaveiw)
This is very little advertised and you can see with binoculars and a little exploring many types of water fowl and wild life not fenced in either,wild,free!!
pluss when we visited island sandown zoo and Amazon world pluss many other bird/animal reserves were still going strong
Enjoy its a super island

So sad to hear that it has closed
Aug 2015 • Family
We are visiting the Isle of Wight at Easter and were checking opening times of places to go and top of our list was Seaview Wildlife Encounter. We have visited at least once a year over the past 15 years and always enjoyed the park and excellent food in the restaurant. We were shocked and very sad to hear it has closed. In our opinion it was the best attraction on the island.
